My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: OK
I am reviewing the resume of a disabled family member. He is an older (40ish), recent college grad in a technology area. He has multiple issues several of which would be evident in a pre-employment physical and drug screen. In addition, he will need time off during normal business hours for physician's appointments and treatments. He was a special ed student in high school and received some accommodations during college. He is not currently a client of the state vocational assistance agency, and they have no slots available to assist him.
He has cancer (controlled with treatments) and bipolar ( controlled with use of multiple prescriptions), uses medical oxygen several hours a day (has FAA approved equipment so could travel on short assignments), and has learning disabilities of which the most debilitating is auditory processing involving memory of verbal information. Side effects of his conditions, treatments and medications occasionally result in his being bedridden from pain for several days once or twice a year. His IQ is in the gifted range and standardized test scores above the 97 percentile. He can respond appropriately in a conversation but cannot remember details of the conversation very long (less than an hour). He operates in a visual world which explains his academic record.
Please suggest how these should be handled on a resume as he meets the qualifications for AA consideration and would need to disclose them for a physical exam and in an interview when asked about specifics. He has been very forthcoming on his mental health and learning disability issues but less so on his cancer; the cancer diagnosis is new compared to the other conditions. He appears "normal" when you meet him so many people in authority do not believe he is limited by his physical and mental health conditions.
As you might guess, he is very sensitive on the subject but really needs a job. The ideal position would include the flexibility to work from home on occasion but the requirement to work at the office as well. Please help! If you know of a resource that includes sample resumes that would be especially appreciated.
