Is depression or serious chemical imbalance considered a disability.
Question Details: when your bosses know you have a disability and have even gave you info for counseling , shouldn't they be able to give you a second chance, when you aren't even sure you did something wrong or not.
Yes, depression, or a chemical imbalance, is a disability under the federal Americans With Disabilities Act ("ADA"), and you can't be discriminated against because of it. However, if you have done something that caused a problem in the workplace, it can be difficult to use this remedy.
The other key question is whether you can still do the job. If so, and you need some special adjustment of your working conditions to help you get through the day, you can often get a "reasonable accommodation" from your employer under the ADA. You need to talk to a local attorney who handles employment discrimination cases, for reliable advice based on a more detailed review of your case.
