It's never happened to me but I've seen it happen to others, and it's not pretty, but as you say it's difficult and expensive to prove. We have anti-discrimination employment laws here, too, but I imagine they're pretty easy to get around.
It's easy to feel like a "victim" when you get dismissed for no apparent reason. I received stellar performance reviews but still got canned. I still do not understand why. Was it my MS? I am sure it had something to do with it because I saw their attitudes change somewhat when they found out. But my attitude wasn't always cheerful, especially on tough days. I have to take some responsibility in what happened. Nonetheless, I still feel that they did not give me any clear warnings or try to discuss my attitude - if that was the problem - with me before taking these measures.
Living with MS isn't easy, especially if co-workers do not support you. Disclosure is not necessary but it can be worthwhile if your employer supports you.
I try to focus on my qualifications but there are some very tough moments where my self-confidence falls to zero. Searching for work in a highly competitive field of finance isn't easy. I pray for the best.
