Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: I need to know if there is anyway that I can use a lawyer to prove that I have competence and the ability to retain information to my employer.
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: New Mexico. I work for a federal contracted company on Clovis Air Force Base.
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: this is my first step.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I’m a national Guard Member in the Mississippi Air Force Air National Guard. I am on a PIP (Personal Improvement Plan) which I have documentation of, that no one else in my work center is on. I am prohibited from regular functions that other people in my work center can do, because they believe that I have an issue retaining information. USSERA applies to me.

Is their an employment contact in place?

William Kenworthy, Expert

So if an employment contract is not in place, your employment may be at-will. 

At-will means that an employer can terminate an employee at any time for any reason, except an illegal one, or for no reason without incurring legal liability. Disability discrimination would be illegal. so if you had a disability and the employer was not providing a reasonable accommodation, that would generally be illegal unless there was an undue hardship. But otherwise, an employer can generally termiante an employee for almost any reason with limited exceptions, such as illegal conduct.
