Legal Answers
128 Questions Answered
Q. I work in a assisted living cna, with 2 floors and memory care is the floor no one see's when they come in the entrance.
A: Unless you have an employment contract dictating otherwise, your employer can generally add to or change your job duties at any time for any reason, as long as it not for an unlawful reason. What you are describing sounds unfair, but it is not unlawful. However, your employer must pay you for all compensable work you are performing.
Q. I was diagnosed with aortic aneurysm. Not big enough for surgery yet. Can Still work. Do I have to tell employer?
A: Whether you are still capable of working is a question for your medical providers. It sounds like your medical provider released you to return to work with restrictions. If your job duties require you to lift more than 40 pounds or elevate your blood pressure, then you should inform your employer of your medical condition and request an accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act. You should contact an employment lawyer in your area to discuss the details of your situation and your options moving forward.
Q. Can my employer legally put me on forced sick leave because they won't accept my medical mask exemption?
A: You are correct that you could be exempt from facemask requirements due to a medical condition. However, a full analysis of your situation is necessary to determine whether your employer is violating the law by accommodating you by placing you on sick leave (vs. another accommodation that would allow you to continue to work). An employer need not accommodate your request for an exemption if it would pose an undue burden to the organization. You should contact an employment lawyer in your area to discuss the details of your situation and your options.
