I have been suspended from my job since November 1, 2016. I work for Tempur-Sealy as a quality inspector for Stearns & Foster beds. On this day, I was shot by a nail gun from 12 feet away which imbedded into my left ear from another worker. I suffer from extreme PTSD which H.R. has a copy of that I had given to them. After I was struck, I pulled the nail out and lucky for the sharp points did not impale inside my ear. well I had a flashback and became angry at the person threaten to hurt him as I was enraged. I made the mistake and threw my tag gun at the person and missed but it skipped on the ground and struck another person in the leg which bounced off. It barely tapped him. So my manager responded and soon after I was verbally informed that I was suspended and they would call me. I received a call from H.R. who said that they wanted to send me to a Psych doctor to make sure I was ok to work and pose no danger. So far nothing! I am 80% disable combat veteran and now struggling to make ends meet. I know for a fact that their is no training documentation for those workers whom work with the nail guns. There is no safety
measures to prevent nails from hitting me as I work the inspection line. can OSHA
get involed, what can I do?
JA: Because employment law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Plainfield, Indiana
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will
," union, full time or part time?
Customer: It is fulltime and I guess at will.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I guess not as this is all the information I can give you plus I have no documentation from Tempur-Sealy in regards ***** ***** suspension and investigation.
