Customer Question
Is it legal for...

Is it legal for my employer to prohibit nurses from having water at the nursing station?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you discussed this with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?

The nurse manager has no problem with it

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you an "at will" employee? Do you belong to a union?

Nurses union

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

They say it is an infection control initiative but we serve snacks to our patients post op so I do not see the logic behind it.
