What to do when your job says you have to risk your life?


Where is the line for company loyalty, for employee loyalty? At what point do they ask too much? Consider the following: Teacher made to do frequent blood checks and administer shots for a student when all other students on campus are done by the nurse. Teacher gets stuck with dirty needle. It gets worse from there. Teacher is looking for advice. Any suggestions?

    Thank you. I have a union rep and a union attorney on it but the district is getting horribly nasty about it. They are even trying to say now that I do not have the right to amend the filing though it falls in time line. I would love a referral.

    That's very sad but that teacher is to be blamed to a certain extent. Firstly, that's not apart of her job description and as such, cannot be penalized for not doing it. That should be done by a medical professional. The law would favor her side 100%

    The teacher should be grateful that that student parents didn't sue her and the school. I hope she didnt get any infection/disease from that dirty needle.
