My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Massachusetts
I am a fee for service clinician for a large hospital group. I provide psychotherapy 2 days per week in an outpatient clinic. I applied for and was offered a second job with the same medical group yesterday working as an Emergency Services Clinician.
One month ago my supervisor issued a warning about my "lack of attention to detail" in charts. I was very concerned by this and sought a neurological exam. I was diagnosed with ADD and medication has transformed my personal and professional life.
Here is the email I received from HR this afternoon:
As part of the recruitment process, HR reviews an employee’s performance history before approving transfers or additional jobs. Because of your recent performance issues at the Gloucester Clinic you cannot add a secondary position at this time. Should your performance improve to meet expectations you will be permitted to apply again in a year.
Is there any way I can get HR to bend on this? Should I find out if my supervisor threw me under the bus? How much should I focus on the disability?
