Almost 1/5 years ago they revised my three level with a four level - ACDF - vertebrectomy - cage and posterior rods. About 6 weeks after returning to work I was laid off - fired - termed - what ever -
Filed for SSD(still pending judge review - determination) ... collected underemployment for a couple of months - till somehow I got a new job mid february of this year. My new job is EXTREMELY stressfull and had caused my physical (and mental conditions) to worsen GREATLY. Saw my doc last night who said I should take a sick week off and gave me a note for such.
Today I talked with my direct report as I had the beginning of the week and again explained to her that my workload was causing exasperation of my conditions and I needed a break.
I also told her that to continue to work I needed reasonable accomodations (such as reduction in my workload)
and that there are laws that support this type of activity for people with disabilites.
We agreed on three "sick days" with me to return next Wednesday. I have no idea what to expect. Will they attempt to keep me on and lessen my load (my clients love me and I have mad skills in my field) - will they fire me for trumped up charges and try to dispute my unemployment - will I need yet another attny to assist in a suit against them for violation of the American with Disabilities Act?
I just never know whats next ... suggestions- please??
