So, if you remember, I feel like they are out to get me here at work...
 
Anyways....
My boss just called me into a meeting & decided to WRITE ME UP!
 
Why? Well, because I have not made enough phone calls to customers. B.S. 
nono 
 
So, here is step 1 to getting me outta here.
If she can try to find just one more little thing, they will be able to fire me and make it look like its work related and not FMLA related.
 
I am SO done!

Donna,

I am so sorry this is happening to you. I think Mikal99 gave you great advise. The only other thing I would recommend is docement docement document. Note down every odd, different, etc. You may need a very accurate joural with exact dates and times, should you need to fight your case.

Donna,
I read the post in your other thread about them moving your desk (and others are right - it IS their property and anything you bring into that worksite can be claimed as theirs, too) and now I see this post and it does look like the writing is on the wall. Likely they're trying to get rid of you for "cause" to avoid paying an unemployment.

I really think you should at least get a consult with an attorney who specializes in employment law. Most will give you a free initial consult over the phone or even on the internet. You need to know how to legally protect yourself - and now. Being proactive here can make life easier for you should they make a move. If they know you know your rights, it will make a big difference. You also need to get some protection (in the way a lawyer advises you) for needing some reasonable accomodation in your work, and that may even include not being able to keep up the same numbers you used to. But don't talk with your employer about it until you've spoken with a lawyer. They really are giving you every sign that they're headed toward trying to find a reason to fire you and you don't want to let that happen.

Also, I would suggest bringing everything that's personal home with you. They can legally lock you out of the building, and some may allow you to get your personal items, others may pack them up and hand them to you, but they don't have to do that. I went through this and I was glad that when I went out on medical leave I took home anything of value to me. I was also lucky I shared an office with a great colleague, so when I got the call I was being laid off I asked him to pack up the rest of my stuff and put it in his trunk.

Be sure you do not leave anything incriminating in your office. Do not violate any rules about how you use your computer, personal phone calls, etc. This can really become a miserable existence if you have to look over your shoulder every minute, and at some point they can likely find a way to get rid of you. The question is whether it's via firing for cause (you don't want that) or being laid off, or a medical retirement of some sort. All of this needs to be decided with the help of an attorney.

I know it's not fun, but I hope you don't just put your head in the sand and hope that it goes away. It probably won't.

Take care of yourself in this!

Thanks PA Lady!
Great Advice.

Also, dosent help things that I have NO pain meds. I am going thru serious withdrawls. (my prev dr said I now have to start getting them from the PM dr)

I did call the PM Dr on Friday and had to leave a message. On their recording it says they respond in 72 clinic business hours....and they are apparently closed on Mondays! Another kicker is that they havent even seen me for the pain meds yet. That appointment isnt until 4/29. I cannot wait that long!!!

So now, a HORRIBLE monday at work. Full of pain & withdrawls & this crappy work environment. Lord help me..........

I'm sorry you're going thru this. Is the "required" number of phone calls you need to make written down anywhere? Unless there is a written document stating you have to make ___ calls, then you can tell them that without a written policy, you will do as many calls as you can during the day until you are given the paperwork for a company wide policy.

Good for you for documenting everything...they sound like real stinkers there.

Pam,
No, there is NO policy or anything that states __ amount of calls need to be made.
I was actually thinking about that same thing this weekend.... but dont know what I can do about it now..
