That IS the point. In the past they got him a "tremor mouse" that JAN suggested. Job Accomodations Network. Now his is doing well on the new meds but the specialist who prescribed them wrote his problem as Parkinsonianism. Can that be held against him? The doctor was confident at the time that he would be back to work. Tmw we have a 9am appt with her or followup and them she might prescribe additional meds to push this along even faster. But that HR person scared me when she said his depatment was very very busy now and that he should speak wih him immediate supervisors befor he attempt to return and when I asked about any accom, if ever needed,s he said no. can they do that. They are making him a nervous wreck to go back as if he was oing to be under a microscope. I have MS and this is not helping me and I am medically covered under him. 1. Should he or does he have to speak with his immediate supervisors as i seems they are chanin the job description? Or if this doctor writes no restrictions should we just send that in. Can they just fire him?
They are now in the middle of a huge Windows 7 upgrade suppose , when he speaks to his supervisors, they hit him with all kinds of questions about this, technical questions, anything to show that he may not be up to it. How should he answer them, "I'm ready to do my job"? He is expecting the sky to fall on his head when he returns and THAT does not help his condition. How should he approach any question and answer session they put him through and are they allowed to put him through it?
Sorry, I forgot to mention this which could be important and which HR has no knowledge of. Before he went out on FMLA his immediate supervisor told him to go out an get well, on the right meds, because "she couldn't protect him anymore" by that she meant that she had been assigning him to jobs within the department that fitted his slight tremor or things that he was better at. How can that play into this. As I said before in no place is that written and his work and attendance records are without flaw.
