As an ATR I reported to a high school in Brooklyn and was told that my program for the week required that I teach four consecutive periods with no time for a bathroom break. I
am entitled to a bathroom break under the ADA and is enforced by the Medical office of the DOE. The principal, Michael Alexander overruled those directives, claiming that a private arrangement he had made with a teacher on maternity leave preempted my rights under the OEO and trumped my rights under the UFT/DOE agreement. Shame on you Michael Alexander!
After I alerted you to the fact that your private arrangement with a teacher in your school does not trump OEO and UFT requirements, you did not modify my program and comply with the Accommodation that I am entitled to under ADA law. As a result of complying with your directive I became ill, since you saw to it that my entitlement to a bathroom break was ignored. This was after we had presented the issue to the school's chapter leader!
