A worker with a sleep disorder wonders if dozing off in a meeting hampered a transfer request, reports The New York Times.

I work for a large corporation with multiple layers of management. Some years back I attended a town hall-style video presentation in a darkened movie theater. I sat in the front row — and dozed off. As I was walking out, a senior executive glared at me, and then my I.D. badge. No one ever mentioned the incident to me. And since then I’ve been diagnosed with a sleep disorder and successfully treated.
