My son was dismissed from work

My son has just been dismissed from work because his employer said he looked up CP on the internet and couldn't find anything related to memory loss, so didn't believe him when he said this. Any comments??

    Hello @nashey48 and a warm welcome to the community.
    Any comments? Quite a few I can think of, but our system doesn't like the use of expletives in text.
    Doubtfully even legal and certainly improper, in my humble opinion.
    However, it might be of use to you to speak with our CP specialist @Richard_Scope who will be in touch with you.
    Please bear with us and keep in touch.
    Warmest best wishes to you and to your son,
    Richard

    Hi Richard,

    I can do but because of the situation and resulting outcome, I cannot put this on a public forum.  I'm happy to talk on the telephone if you give me a number. Many thanks,
