Default Re: What is happening

Luckily some managers are more sensible than others, I'm glad Kibby's current one seems reasonable and understood her reasons for quitting without notice. I think her former manager is lucky not to have been sued for knowingly taking the risk of aggravating a known medical condition (assuming Kibby showed the manager a doctor's certificate for it).

Here, the employer would be liable for all medical costs following an accident on the job and paid sick leave. Doesn't matter if you work part or full time or have an indefinite or time-limited contract either. So here employers take health-related limits on work very seriously, not doing so could be expensive. A manager knowingly risking the health of their employees would risk getting fired themselves. Even if the regulations for firing someone are stricter here than in the US.
