EMBED CODE (Copy and Paste)
Some employees resent others because they feel special accommodations are made for what is perceived to be a lack of any physical disability. Not all disabilities are visible, such as being deaf in one ear while having only 20 percent hearing in the other ear. While some of her coworkers are aware of her condition, they make snide comments about her "only hearing what she wants to hear." They've complained to their supervisor that they are "tired of repeating themselves." Other employees suffering from cancer, debilitating back pain and multiple sclerosis are criticized for using handicap parking spaces. These health conditions may or may not be public knowledge, but these employees have been accused of using their disabilities as an excuse to not perform because of a perception of an unwillingness to work hard. For the record, they have performed admirably, are highly reliable and have received good performance ratings. They are wonderful with customers and are sensitive and compassionate, unlike some of their coworkers.
