    recent employment case

    Bearing in mind how difficult it can be to find employment and what he probably went through emotionally,I think the compensation was inadequate http://www2.cipd.co.uk/pm/peoplemanagement/b/weblog/archive/2016/12/16/autistic-subway-worker-awarded-163-15-000-for-discriminatory-dismissal.aspx

    Changing Jobs

    The job I have right now I've had for a long time. In a way, it's been very good for me, because it's highly interactive and is major sensory overload. I've come a long way in my ability to deal with situations I once thought were impossible for me to handle. In fact, I've never disclosed that I have Asperger's. The reason I never disclosed it is honestly because I am so private, that I really didn't feel comfortable telling people I would otherwise not associate with something so intimate about me. It seemed unfair, though I've kept the possibility in my back pocket if ever it became too much and I needed my employer to take it easy, and understand why. Lately, I have been really wanting to find another job. It has become so hectic that it's becoming too much. It's crowded all of the time; crowds can really become too much for me to handle. People are stressed and pissy, and it makes me literally livid when someone puts bullshit on me early in the morning. Early in the morning is not a good time for me to be interactive, and I'm a ticking time bomb if someone is rude or demanding with me too early. My anger honestly worries me a little. I actually have violent thoughts towards people if they are confrontational with me, simply because they are entitled and grouchy. My responses have gone from trying to calmly pacify the situation, to barely getting out of the conversation without getting myself fired. In fact about a month ago there was this woman who was acting like a flaming lunatic and being very condescending, and I called her a f-ing bitch (mostly under my breath). She heard and freaked out, asked to speak to my manager. I've never had an incident and am one of the most valuable and veteran employees, so when she told him, he didn't believe her. She left furious, and has never come back. He asked me what happened and I just denied that it happened. Luckily, she was acting crazy and rude to everyone, and I acted perfectly calm and rational, so nothing actually came of it. Everyone just believed me and thought she was crazy. But it was a very close call. My dilemma is that I am feeling trapped by limitations I have. My current job has become so familiar and routine, that to break that routine seems like an impossible feat, sometimes. Every time I get close to it, I think, 'But it could be just as bad or worse. It's such a gamble.' Yet in the present circumstance, I feel utterly drained every day, and I don't even know how I keep doing it. I'm not sure what the best coarse of action is. Where does self-improvement end and destructive environment begin?

    Ostracisation at work

    I started working for my current employer early in June of last year. At first, I got invited out to lunch with my department-mates a fair amount, but as time went on it became less and less, and, after my "birthday lunch" in August, just totally stopped. I've even tried "inviting myself" at the end of last month, as much as I hate doing so, and I could just tell my presence was...not so much resented as, "I'll deal with her if I have to because I'm too nice to do otherwise." (Should probably also mention here that I'm a software developer, so my department is overwhelmingly male, which is how I prefer it, actually--not fond of women by any stretch and the fact that every other department here is 98% female drives me crazy.) I've even asked if I can tag along, been looked at right in the eye, and they keep walking...I don't really know how ELSE to interpret that... And no, I have zero idea what I did to alienate everyone...I never do... I've flat-out ASKED my supervisor, and all I get is, "It's fine, you could come if you wanted," but then when I take him at his word... *Sigh* No one'll be straight with me and I'm getting fed up of being odd-woman-out in EVERY situation. I've started only showing up for social whatever if EXPLICITLY invited, because then I know my presence cannot be resented, at least not with any sort of claim of a moral high ground. Has this sort of thing happened to anyone else? How do you deal? How do you not take it personally or worry that it reflects on your future with the company? DOES this reflect on my future with the company, based on experiences y'all have had in the past? (PS: if a mod feels this thread better belongs in the relationships forum, I don't blame you. I ham-hawked for a while before deciding to put it here.)

    Motivation Tips

    This time of year I find it so hard to motivate myself to do anything. This morning I nearly skived off work because I just couldn't move from my bed. It's not that I wanted more sleep, I was wide awake, I just wanted to stay home. I'm sat at my desk now and I just can't motivate myself to do my jobs at work and they are only small jobs today. Everyone has days like this but I've been feeling like this for over a month now. I'm relatively ok up until christmas, but I am dreading January. It's the worst month for me, I get so down in myself and I just really struggle. Anyone have some tips to stay motivated so i don't lose my job?
