Single Status Update
I am looking for help...what is the interpretation of this policy by my previous employer: (VA medical center.
d. It should be noted that if an employee is no longer qualified or able to perform the essential functions of the job, VA is not ordinarily absolved of the duty to provide reasonable accommodation.
I am trying to justify that the accommodations provided to me were not reasonable accommodations and I was in a "protected environment" during the last years of my employment Provisions made were:
1.Permanent change of shift until my retirement, not availed to anybody.
2. Hired another staff( undue cost) to perform the essential part of my job(Lifting and positioning patients)
3. Let me sleep and let me go home without charging me leave. Any clarification to what it means is appreciated. Thanks
