I'm currently employed as an assistant manager for a large pizza chain down here in sunny San Diego, CA. I've been with this company for well over a year and just got my first raise and entered management which is cool I guess. But I have an issue, I suffer from severe debilitating repeated migraines almost every day of the week for some undetermined span. This had really never been a problem before, as I would end up getting a migraine for a few hours after waking up in the afternoon, about 1:00pm to 3:00pm and then I'd be fine to go to work from 5:00pm to 1:00am no problems. Then recently the schedule changed to being almost random and lasting 6-8 hours.
I wish I could say that I should just suck it up when I get these headache, hell I wish I could, but when the doctor asks you worst pain 1-10 I don't even think twice about it being a 10 (In comparison shattering my arm was a 6 on that scale).
So I was 10 minutes late on tuesday. I ended up getting a migraine around 3:00pm with work at 5:00pm so I called the person who was going to be closing that night right away and said I may be a little late. I thought 2 hours notice was plenty fair, apparently not. When I got in to work today, after a work meeting in which I sat through with double vision and light sensitivity, my manager tells me that being late due to a migrain, even with 3-4-5 hours notice he doesn't give a fuck, is no longer acceptable and that it is not covered under the Americans with Disability acts, and that if I don't suck it up and do my job I will not have one to show up late to.
I'm honestly not sure what to do, I tried to tell him I've been in and out of neurology and that I have started a new med that is supposed to help but it will take a couple weeks, but he just told me to "can it".
If I get fired should i appeal to ADA? Should i go over his head and talk to his supervisor? This manager is someone I used to be good friends with, and really enjoyed working with. But ever since I stopped being able to come in on my days off, work over time, cover his shifts, and do just about anything at any time he's become a real dick.
