Q: I/fired/emplyer tried2force me to sit in/room w/over2 months worth of medical waste and threw a bio can at me filed ohsa
my employer like so many talked to me disrespectfully from the beginning but with the At Will law I know they can treat me however they want
In this case the employer had not disposed of medical waste for months and when I wouldn't sit with it threw a bio waste can at me .. Supervisor apologized
Next situation a patient seen another patient naked due to the poor setup. Filing that grievance sent supervisor back to tell me I had to much oxygen, I was too perfect and then instructed to do my job sloppy to save time. When I went to mangmt and said I'm still being harassed and intimidated mangmt said How
I started off by stating the waste mangmt and can toss; never got to the too much oxygen part instead was fired. Was told I'm not a good fit for them using words like harassment and intimidation
Your employer could potentially be fined, but one thing to consider is if your employer terminated you in retaliation for your report. For that, you should contact an employment law attorney to discuss your situation in more detail.
