Several months ago, I was at work and became hypoglycemic. I went and told my supervisor they needed to send me on my break immediatly. She informed me that I could go in approx. 20 minutes, when the other lady came back.
My manager came back and told me to either drink some OJ, or eat some candies because they could not send me on break at that time.
Today it happened again. I was talking and then I was told I became drunk acting. Stumbling into walls, etc. I went and took a Klonopin (as I have anxiety and panic attacks). The panic attack kept coming so I went and took another one and then a third one.
My Manager noticed I was stumbling around and asked me if I was drunk. I told her no, and she said clock out and leave the premises.
She told me to call her back at 5:00.
One of my coworkers noticed this and told another coworker (who is diabetic), and she realized what was happening. She gave me juice, candy, and peanut butter crackers.
When I called my Manager back she asked what was going on with me, and I explained the low sugar reaction. She then told me since I did not tell anybody I put myself at risk as well as my coworkers. Therefore I was suspended until Friday.
Is this legal and what can I do about it?
