How to discuss work task limitations prior to scoliosis fusion surgery
I am scheduled for scoliosis surgery in 3.5 months, need to continue working. My job usually involves a lot of sitting but sometimes I have to go on job sites where I'm on my feet for 2 to 4 hours which has become hard to do. My employer says " they do what they can to help and support my upcoming surgery", and I told them that being on my feet causes pain and I have to take many breaks but they still continue to send me out on this site visits. Am I expected to do this work or am I to expect that they can find others to do the work? I work at a firm that's quite small so they really aren't that many options for others to do these tasks however I feel as though I am risking further pain and possible injury to minors and wonder what my legal options are.
