I have asthma and my job was aware of it due to the fact the I had a workers comp claim back on 8/27/08. Managers were painting a wall 10ft in front of my desk which triggered my asthma. The company paid for my doctors bills and the time that I was out of work.
On 12/27/8 a painting crew was painting the receptionis wall and refinishing the receptionist desk using adhesive and once again I left work and visited the hospital emergency ward. I was out of work until 1/17/09. This time the company denied my workers comp claim.
Now my asthma has became chronic and I have chronic sinusitis.
I have a specialist that treats asthma and sinusitis who stated that the fumes from the paint has caused severe damage to my lungs.
Now I must give myself allergy shots for 18 months and use a nebulizer
I work for telemarketing company that is open 24 hours a day.
I notified OSHA concerning the work environment on 7/15/9 and my job recieved several fines.
I believe that is why I am having problems getting the documents from my personnel file.
Thank you so much
