I was just reading over my "handbook" from work and it looks like they may have covered their butts with the whole possible job loss. Earlier this week I talked to the office manager she said to get a letter from my Dr I informed her that I was waiting for it to arrive and I would bring it by next week. I did tell her I could not lift anything over 20 pounds and no vacuuming and mopping the animal hospital, (vet assistants do a cross between janitorial type duties and intro to vet tech stuff). I informed her today after she informed me that they were fully staffed (which 2 days ago she never mentioned loss of my job) mainly due to my limitations. I informed her as of the 20th of September my Dr said no restrictions as far as work...she (the office manager at the animal hosp.) said I should find a job where I sit and answer phones.
I am going to have both my husband and father read over the sections about temp disability in my handbook...in the handbook it says that I must return the handbook upon termination, I need to bring them the office key anyway or I get to pay for the building to get new locks and keys for all employees...yeah thats in the handbook too.
I was searching online for reception type jobs (preferably in some medical field even if not veterinary), there were 2 classifieds that caught my attention. The first was a reception posistion at my old GIs office (they have 12 drs there). The other which I plan on emailing my resume tomorrow in hopes that the position has not been filled is a receptionist at my new GIs office (they have 8 GIs there). The job was posted 8/6/07 so its almost 3 weeks later, I can hope though hey if I go back on remicade they can wheel a pole in reception area or a pc to the remicade room lol.
well they say God gives you only what you can handle....I think my plate is toppling over
