Shelter - that's why you need to consult a lawyer. There are laws that are different in each state, and each case may be different. I'm not saying I condone the process, believe me! But it is what it is and the main person that can help you sort out your rights, what doctors you need to see, how to document when/why you have to cancel appointments is going to be a lawyer. Hopefully one will take your case for a contingency fee, but also ask about whether they pay the costs even if you lose. My case was lost and I had to pay $200 for a lousy transcript - costs aren't the same as lawyer's fees, and different lawyers may negotiate a different contract with you.

I wish you all the best....

I know the kind of work you do, and it is hard physically and psychologically. Your lawyer may also be able to tell you whether getting treatment for what sounds like some depression will be covered.

I found out too late about my employer's policy that a worker's comp settlement of any amount would also have to include a resignation. It sounds like maybe you don't care if that happens and if you can get a good settlement maybe getting away from that job will be what you need. Don't make any hasty moves without some legal advice.

Hugs,

I called a lawyer a week ago- she promised me that she'd call me back asap and or have an associate call me...
no one has called

i will have to try her again
but i work tomorrow 9-8:30

The last few days I KNOW I am battling depression ; I ahve have never had the bad, low deep thgoughts like I ahve this past week...
and i am on the verge of tears almost instantly

and of course it snot easy for me.... to talk about other things... when I cant think of anything to say...
I'm also feeling angry
I caught my employee in a lie...

which tells me lots

I'm sad
but not sorry for the path I have had to go on.... to BRING LIGHT & to bring RIGHTNESS to the work place

thanks PA LAdy... underthe bus maybe we can chat sometime...
