I have worked for the same hospital for 10 years. About 2 years ago, I had to reduce my hours because of my MS. I put in for a position that would have me sitting more of the day doing the same job. I was denied that position even though they knew about my MS and the trouble I was having being on my feet to much. The position was given to someone who quit the hospital years before. When I asked why I was not given the position, all they said was because that's how it is. I was forced to keep reducing my hours, until I finally had to go per-diem. I kept asking for hours but was never given any. I went to my boss and told him my six months was coming up that was required for me to work to keep my position; he said he would get back to me. I never heard from him, I kept leaving him messages. I went to the hospital to talk to him and found out he took off on vacation. I called the day he got back no response. I called human resources and was told that a letter was sent to them that same day saying they no long needed me. I called my boss and asked him why, he said because I had limited hours I could work. He kept the other per-diem people even though they have only been working there for a few months. Can they do this to me?
