It sounds like you definitely have a complaint against UPS with the DOL (the dol administers all FMLA complaints and problems with employers ). They will investigate the matter and work with your doctor and UPS to come up with a workable solution for you sensitivity to the oils spills issues and any other issues that you may have, And, you are protected from retaliatory termination for up to 18 months after the conclusion of that investigation -- which means that if you are terminated in that time period the DOL will sue on your behalf for wrongful termination. So this is the best move that you can make in this case. My suggestion here is that you should start keeping your own written journal or logbook )not on company computers that they can access) -- In that journal should should document every oil spill and the date and time of it and who was present and who stated that it should not be entered in the company logbook (to show they are hiding the number of spills which are the direct cause of your respitory distress. You should start this now and think back too the not too distant past and go back as far as you can remember when there was an oil spill that was not reported and then go forward from there and turn over copies to the DOL. If it is bad enough it might just become a OSHA issue and UPS will be in a larger heap of trouble with OSHA and they will be wishing they settled the matter with you and gave you the FMLA leave that you may need.,
Please let me know if you have further questions. If not, can you please press a positive rating above in the star rating section so that I will be paid for my time tonight?
