Work problems

I've got a doctors note to say i can not work a lot of hours and need them reduced and i can't lift heavy things. My boss said yeah that's fine, he'll sort out the schedule.

He hadn't sorted anything out. He's scheduled me 3-4 different 9 hour shifts a week. I can barely cope with working 3 hours, let alone 9. I've had to hand my notice in. It's the only way it's going to work.

Has anyone else had this problem?

I'm sorry these days employers have lack of empathy as I to provided an excuse besides endo I have bladder mesh and chronic pain with back issues but they never from start accomadated my frequent use of restroom resorting to me having an accident plus I quit to later return on the promise of accommodations that fell through and got fired - they refused unemployment to top off so it's been extra emotional stress. Some people just don't understand the crippling discomfort these systems bring I fear I'll never find a match job and long term career due to this chronic disease


I'm sorry to hear that. I've also just started at a nursery but that's only 9 hours a week to begin with. Which suits me a lot better than working at Mcdonalds.

I hope you find something soon
