I’ll try to keep this short.
My wife is a server/bartender at the most popular restaurant in town and she somehow developed a stress fracture in her foot.
She recently saw the podiatrist who gave her a note for a week off from work and when she goes back only limits to 8 hour shifts and she has a boot that she has to wear when she goes back.
The management is trying to tell her she cannot wear the boot and won’t let her work until she doesn’t need the boot. Their argument being it’s open toe and non-slip resistant.
She can’t afford to be off work for an extended period which I think she needs anyway to heal I can make plenty of money working OT but it really is the principle of it all. How can they tell someone with a legitimate medical condition that they can’t wear a doctor described medical device? Anyway I would appreciate some input. I keep telling her to quit and I’ll pick up the slack but she’s stubborn.
