My wife was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in Nov. of 2003 She is a med tech at local nursing home. In Dec of 03 her family physician called her administrator and told him she was to no longer lift non-wieght bearing residents at work. He agreed to this, and stated that she was to no longer do Cna duties, that she would work the med cart only. Since then her hours(40 per pay period,) have lessened to part-time. Two weeks ago, she recieved a 1 month schedule, that had her only working 1 weekened per month. When she asked the staffing shceduler about this, she was told they didnt have any more hours for her than that. Also was told, ''well, the other nursing homes are hiring med techs, or you could take a layoff''. is this legal, can they do this
