I just read a touching story of a Canadian man who revealed that he suffered from depression during a job interview with Transport Canada years ago. He was not given the job and was seemingly blacklisted from similar jobs thereafter. His depression worsened, preventing him from holding or seeking employment. He was forced into poverty and homelessness. A Canadian Human Rights Tribunal recently ruled in his favour and ordered Transport Canada to pay damages in the order of half a million dollars and that he be given the job he had applied for without competition. 

Slow progress is better than no progress I guess.
