Q: In Ohio, am I required to probvide a doctor’s note if I refuse to do a job that I was not hired to do?
I was hired for customer support/call center. For 3 weeks, my manager has had customer support doing warehouse jobs- picking & shipping.
A: Generally, your employer can change your job description and job duties at any time for any reason, regardless of whether you were hired to do a particular job. However, if there is a medical reason that you cannot complete the job duties of the warehouse position, then you can request an accommodation. Your employer can require that the accommodation request be supported by a note from your doctor.
A: Hello, more information is needed here. If you have a note from a doctor requesting a reason accommodation for a medical condition that qualifies as a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act, the company should engage in an interactive process to accommodate your disability. I would recommend reaching out to an employment law attorney in your state for a consultation.
