I was out from work on long-term disability for nearly a year due to basilar migraines. Although the neuro has found a med combo that mostly keeps the migraines at bay, I still can't drive.
My husband has to drive me to work. Often he needs to pick me up early because he works nights. I need to take care of our two small children when he leaves for work, so I can't simply take alternate transportation to get home on those days. So when needed, he is picking me up at 3 and I finish working from home those days (3:30 to 5:30). The boss has also told me that whenever I am feeling "off" and it doesn't interfere with work, she has no issues with me working from home.
This sounds like a reasonable accommodation to me, but I am uncertain if I should request it through more formal channels to protect my job (my coworker was fired a month before I returned to work). Any advice on what I should do? Your input is appreciated. The stress is not helping.
