Moab, UT asked in Employment Discrimination and Employment Law for Utah

Q: I have worked for a local hospital from home doing prior auth for 8 years and now they are forcing me to come in-house.

I cannot do my job correctly working from a cubicle and that’s why they had me work from home in the first place. Now there is new management and they think they can do my job better than me.

A: More information would be needed in order to effectively answer your question. Can you not perform you work correctly in house because of a disability? if that were the case, you may be able to attempt to get reasonable accommodations. If you just prefer to work at home and they are requiring you to work at the office, your employer is well within their rights to require you to come into the office.
