A text message is not proper protocol for accountability. Knowing the companies procedure for documenting negative behavior would play a large part in your claim. In other words, compared to other employees did they treat you differently because of your disability. Knowing if you properly filed ADA medical requested accommodations and if this company was in fact able to make them but either refused to or failed to acknowledge the disability all together is also important.
