    I have a Lawyer who’s firm only charges 25% because I am a UPS employee. I just want to know about anyone who has gone through this experience.

    FCE = Functional Capacity Exam.

    Right ?



    There's always the possibility of an ADA accommodation....

    But, speaking with a lawyer might be appropriate and a sobering reality.

    I (meaning me) would apply for an ADA accommodation.


    Don't try and reach a settlement with UPS by yourself.

    Or maybe a 22.3 job if the fce fail is because a driving issue. Get a lawyer for sure
