Customer Question

We have an employee on modified duties due to an incident at work. He was a helper on a vac truck and now, in order to accommodate we have him typing up a manual in the office.
He usually takes one day off a week that is without notice and without explanation.
He has been asked questions about his doctors appointments and tests, but gives no details.
He also has been asked how things are going and how he is feeling, his response is "Don't talk to me". He has also slammed desk drawers and stood up with fists clenched. When asked if he would like to talk, he has no response.
It seems obvious that this employee doesn't want to be here. Is there any actions we can take that will not be considered discrimination?

Do you have a medical report that says he must be in the office typing rather than doing something else?

And when you say he takes off one day a week are you saying he simply doesn't show up?

Is he in a union?
