They have said they are concerned with the safety of me and others, I have a safety sensitive job. I am a member of a union and their is nothing in our collective agreement that mentions that I have to see the employers doctors. The employer has been informed by my personal doctor and an occupational doctor that my union paid for that I am fully functional and safe to work in a safety sensitive job.My doctor has also informed my employer that my medication will not impair me at work.
my union has been advising me all along not to see their doctors and that there is no requirement for me to do so. They are just required clarity around my condition. The company did terminate me and the union is grieving it. the employer terminated me because they believe that I do not have the medical condition I informed them I have and because I would not see their doctors that was proof that I lied to them about having a condition. I am on here looking for a separate opinion, I do not want to be wasting anyones time or money. I just have a hard time understanding that because I volunteered information about my health that an employer can inject themselves into my personal life and terminate me based on an assumption when I have done nothing wrong during in my work life. No ones safety was at risk and there is absolutely no evidence of that.
