ADA In The Workplace: Pee Dammit, Or You Don’t Get The Job!

My new article in Above The Law deals, frankly, with passing urine or not being hired.  It begins:

“As a long-suffering Jets fan, with 25 years’ season tix under my belt (not any more!), I know what it’s like to consume beer in the parking lot for hours only to have to wait in a long line in the stadium when the call of nature inevitably arrives — and to see a hundred other guys lined up before you.

Bad enough. Worse is when it’s your turn — and the crowd behind you is screaming for you to hurry. And your system decides to seize up.


An unfortunate part of football fandom, but what if your job, and career, depended on your being able to pee on command, and you were unable to do it?

This is not a hypothetical.”
