You need to call HR directly and request a meeting.  When someone brings in a note for a medical exception to work, they’re required by law to go through an accomodation process with you within a certain time frame.  Call them again and don’t get off the phone until you have a definite meeting time set-up.

Yeah, I think you definitely have rights here.  I would go straight to HR with documentation (all of your actions to get your shift switched, Dr.’s notes, even description of symptoms).  Good luck πŸ™

You totally have rights here. And a right to be irritated with your job!!!! Agreed with calling a meeting with HR, but come prepared with doctor’s notes. No offense to midwives (I’m thinking about being one after nursing school!), I’m not sure what kind of power they have as opposed to a doctor’s note, do you have an OB, MD or DO?

Ugh I’m so sorry! Yes you definitely have rights here as PP mentioned above. There’s not much more I can add. Just a side note for the future, you will always need to have proof of vaccines and TB tests or CXR. If you have your varicella titers drawn that will always be sufficient for a long time. The TB deal is annual no matter what.

@Moja Milosc: I hate that phrase, tough it out. I’m a fellow night shift nurse and unless someone’s actually worked it they have no clue the toll it takes on your body pregnant or not.

I’m so sorry and I would be furious, too. As a fellow mama to be who got severly sick until week 18, I feel your pain. For me, nights were also my worst time, and at least I was able to sleep through most of it. You need to listen to your body and HR NEEDS to get back to you right now. Making you wait and repeatedly ask is wrong.

And as a side note, aren’t those “suggestions” from family like “eat saltines” and “just don’t think about it” fun? UGH! Feel better soon and I hope the job stuff gets situated ASAP for you.
