I have been reading a lot of blogs and forums about people having issue’s with there employers. I remember reading one forum saying that there job was cutting breaks and how she felt bad, she said she didn’t want to say much because her co-workers don’t care much about her. When she needs a break because of diabetes. I thought you are allowed at least 2 breaks a day if you work a 8 hr shift. I feel bad for her, she would rather go look for another job than to ask for her breaks.
I read another forum about a guy being asked if he can handle doing the job w/ having diabetes; I think the person was a delivery driver. What kind of question is that to ask someone??? not a good one.
I just read another blog where a young lady is having problems getting her Bg’s under control and she doesn’t have the time off, can’t afford to miss a day off.
I know law’s are different in each state as far as Disability, FMLA and whatever else is out there…
Is there a list of resources for people who don’t know what their RIGHTS? If so, can someone list them?
We are already trying to maintain a healthy lifestlye but to have to STRESS out about work doesn’t help our situation.
I am glad my employer is understanding!!!
