Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.
I'm very sorry to hear about your situation and hope I can help.
What question do you have regarding your situation?
is this legit on their part? I also do the schedule
and noticed prior to her telling me there was an
unknown manager entered in. I know our HR department is hooked up to my boss and her boss and know every manager that has called in a complaint has gotten 'weeded out' so I am uncomfortable contacting them.
Did you file a workers' compensation claim to be put on light duty or is it due to a disability that you have?
no i got hurt outside of work and am currently seeing a specialist next appt is may 24. i also haven't been doing light duty because they have needed me to do things due to mgmt coverage and now they have someone to replace me which is why they are doing this.
Unfortunately, you would only have a basis for a complaint if you believe that you are being treated differently on the basis of your disability that has caused you to need light duty.
Despite common belief, there is nothing illegal about your employer using favoritism in employment decisions and wanting to take your boss' side over yours.
