Thread Name: BS: A 'rights' issue?
Subject: RE: BS: A 'rights' issue?
I know from family experience that it does seem in the United States, that even minor psychological issues can be an impediment to getting a job as a pilot. As a government personnel investigator, I encountered extreme prejudices against psychological issues in most fields of employment, particularly in "sensitive" positions.

But counseling professionals may tend to discount such prejudices, and probably do put priority emphasis on the employment of their clients. In this particular case, the counseling professional failed to predict that the client would go off the deep end.

Could the counselor have predicted the disaster? I don't think so. I'm not sure that this is reason to find fault with anyone.
