Also, if you check your paychecks and constantly notice that you’re being paid less than you earned for that time period, don’t be afraid to look elsewhere for an employer that pays you honestly and in a timely manner.

5. Does Your Company Refuse To Accommodate Your Health And Accessibility Needs?

If you’re living with health conditions and request reasonable workplace accommodations, your company is required by law to honor them. Sadly, though, too many companies balk at implementing accommodations for their disabled, mentally ill, and chronically ill employees. If you disclose your health conditions and offer up ways that your company can help you work with your condition, but they refuse to provide the accommodations you need to succeed, they’re showing the true character of their company. 

Any employer who diminishes your medical needs5t accuses you of “faking” your condition, or refuses to make appropriate accommodations to help you work more efficiently with your disability or illness can contribute to your symptom flare-ups and stress levels. Your medical condition isn’t “too much” to accommodate — and you deserve to work at an employer who genuinely accepts your needs and wants to see you succeed.
