I was assigned a Rehabilitation Consultant (RC) by my long-term income protection provider (disability insurance) back in July. She met with me in person on July 4th. This was her initial assessment of me. She asked me questions about what my restriction/limitations were. Whether I could return to my same job and what accommodations I may need. Do need. She wrote a report, made a plan and what came of that was my employer requesting that my medical information be more specific. The RC designed a questionnaire she called it for my doctor and sent it directly to him. Once this completed questionnaire was provided to my employer on Sep 11th, it took until Nov 26, for my employer to advise the RC that they wanted a Independent Medical Exam (IME).
So, yes I'm freaking out! I simply require a type of chair that has a feature to recline and elevate my legs, with a laptop table to work.
Has your employer ever put you through extreme measures when you felt it unnecessary? Have you ever fought for your Human Rights? I feel punished for having a disability. I never asked for this life, but you must fight for a life to have!
