this is where common sense would take over. i think we're looking at reasonable accommodation. it would depend how important your presence at the meeting is vs the importance of having the meeting at a specific time. maybe the accommodation could be the boss discussing the meeting with you at a separate time one on one.

another accommodation could be my wife's lunch break. if as a diabetic she needs to eat at a specific time, her lunch break could be scheduled differently from the others that must go without food or drink from 3 - 9:30 pm because they all work independently. this wouldn't work the same on an assembly line. i think back to elementary school so many years ago when vincent was allowed to have an orange in school because of what us kids thought was diabetes at the time. now i think it may have been hypoglycemia associated with poor diabetes treatment compliance or management at the time in the 1950's.

RE: Terminal Apnea
I work for a company called ASDA also known as "WALMART" I work in the distribution side of the company and many hundreds of people work there. You can Imagine how hard it was to tell my boss about my problem and took alot of courage and time to break the news to him. One day when it was quiet and my bum, sorry belly was calm. I went into the lions den and ask for a quiet word with him in private. Luck was in because he was the only one there at the time so I began to splutter out about my disability and what it meant and that I was waiting for my test and equipment to come through. (I was shaking by now, waiting for him to sack me) He shook his head and said I knew something was wrong! he then openned his desk draw, which I thought here comes the sack and he pulled out a brand new Quattro ??? He sat there and laughed at me for a full 2 minutes, my face must have been a picture Too-funny

You just never know what surprises lifes going to give you Big Grin

LOL...... i can picture this.

It kinda sharpens the meaning of "know your audience" before preparing a speech.
