    I called human resources on my cell phone and was finally connected to my manager.  She let me in through the offices section of the building.  I knew that was bad.  My supervisor met me in his office, and together with the manager they let me know that I was being let go.  Permanently.  For non-compliance of company procedures.  Discussing my situation didn't matter.  My manager gathered my personal items (there wasn't much but my trusty bottle of ibuprofen), took my key card, and escorted me out of the building.  She privately told me that the company couldn't afford to keep sickly people.

    What were the proper "company procedures" to follow in your situation? Did you ask them to provide you documentation as to where you showed "non-compliance of company procedures"? I would ask for documentation to explain where you violated company policy.

    •  yes I would ask for the documentation and a copy (5+ / 0-)

      of the procedures , Buckeye. As clearly you followed the protocol and you saw the company nurse and you followed her instructions to the letter.

      •  I thought I followed the protocol (4+ / 0-)

        When I can, I'll read it all again.

        The only place I figure that I could have screwed up is by calling the nurse so many times using her extension directly without going through the switchboard.  Maybe I should have found a way to get there and track her down personally?  I know that part is my responsibility.  Every injury and illness issue goes through the nurse first.  That has always been clear.

        If I recall the conversation correctly, the management said the nurse didn't recognize that I had even tried to contact her.
