The 21-year-old woman worked in a small retail store and often managed to get along with her colleagues quite well. In the middle of January, her manager hired Frank. “He has to work as part of a program to help him with navigating the workforce with his disabilities,” she said.

Her new co-worker, Frank, who is 46 years old, had autism and was first introduced as a volunteer. The woman was also autistic; however, she required less support compared to Frank. Plus, she didn’t interact with him much at work due to working in different areas of the store.

Frank volunteered at the store for a couple of hours a day a few times a week, and his mother usually drove him to and from work. However, on a day when Frank’s mother couldn’t pick him up, the woman’s manager informed her that Frank would have to wait at least 30 minutes after their shift ended.

“Frank’s younger brother was home but without a car, and their house wasn’t close enough for someone to walk with Frank and then back to the store,” the woman said. Her manager had Frank sit in the office until closing. After everyone clocked out, the manager asked who would be willing to drive Frank home.

Assuming that alternative arrangements had already been made, the woman and her colleagues were surprised when the manager asked for a volunteer to take Frank home. Feeling uncomfortable with the responsibility and having a stranger in her car, the woman hesitated.

Caught off guard, the woman quickly made up a story, saying she had other commitments and couldn’t drive Frank home. She didn’t feel prepared to take on the responsibility for someone she didn’t know well and was worried about her well-being.

The Manager Was Disappointed

When her manager discovered the truth through a trusted co-worker, the woman was called in for questioning. The manager said he was disappointed in her refusal to help Frank and expected her to step up in similar situations. The manager warned that further dishonesty would have consequences.

In her defense, she stated her reservations about driving someone she barely knew. She also explained how caring for others was challenging when she struggled to care for herself.

However, the manager insisted that refusing to assist a co-worker in need was abandoning and discriminating against them. Given the circumstances of the situation, the woman felt extremely uncomfortable.

“What if this man did anything harmful to you? It would be the manager’s fault.”
