So I got injured on April 4,2022 from a slip and fall accident at my previous seasonal job. Now it took the company 2 weeks to file for workers compensation then seveal weeks later to have exams done and see orthopedics. One orthopedic told me that my left shoulder is a frozen shoulder (mind you he never looked at my images from my mri nor the results as there was and still are several issues and fractures and what not going on.) this orthopedic doctor tells me to exercise my shoulder and keep moving it and everytime I do the pain gets worse. As for my back it’s pulled muscle and my right wrist has a torn tendon. So due to the severity of my injuries I was only paid for 2weeks (as they stated was because it was a seasonal job at the mall.) now it’s almos July and I’m still in pain and seen a physical therapist and all but what’s important is that I have missed my actual job for almost over a month that I just started few days after. It’s complicated and probably confusing at this point. But my point is was that I was told by the orthopedic that I can not use my left arm (in a sling) one moment and the next to move it and to move my right wrist (in a brace), which is kinda impossible when your a cashier and can barely hold a pencil or lift up my own child not to mention I have my back a brace on as well which makes me completely not useful to my company. Now, I havent gotten paid For the times I missed work and went to my therapies and doctor appointments even have a letter stating I’m not allowed to return to work till I’m cleared by my orthopedic (till today I’m still not cleared.)

What can I do in this case as it’s kind of hard as I’m a single mom who needs to provide for my 2year old and pay bills.

I'm so sorry to hear you got injured at work! Its hard to tell what to do next exactly, but can I ask if you have all the documentation related to your injury and aftercare sorted out and organized in case you need to take legal or official action? You may need to also find a way to contact someone in the companies HR department or payroll to sort out which days you should be paid for and any reimbursements. Here is the official federal .Gov Workers Comp Page as well in case you need any of those links, it's full of info about next steps! Good Luck! 💕

I'm telling you the truth...(This Can Blow Your Mind.)

Many people believe they know, which is fine, however, things have changed drastically in recent years.

The people who didn't listen are singing that No. #1 hit song by the Signature and Legendry British Rock Band named QUEEN..."Another One Bites The Dust."

Sharmaine, you don't want to be NEXT.

Listen carefully... I don't give a Rat's Tail-End what you heard in the past. I'm telling you to say these 7 definitive things at your interview and that's it.

Then, everything else will fall-in-place for you. The question is, will you do this?

I'm telling you the truth...

From what we have collectively learned is, you don't get a second chance for your first best impression. Also, everyone knows that Lady Gaga played in the hit movie scene with Bradley Cooper named "A Star is Born."

However, you can be a star too, if you follow some sound proven principles, and say definitive things at your interview. Then, guess what?

When you walk away, you can say... YOU DID IT GIRL, YES, YOU DID IT...!!!

Then, the interview, job and everything else will fall-in-place for you.

I'm telling you the truth... (This Can Blow Your Mind.)

From my experience, and that of my Out of Scope Network of reliable professional associates, many people's resumes say...No, Not Me!

From what we collectively have learned is, you don't get a second chance for a first best impression. However, if you do, it's very rare dealing business with the same company that initially said NO!

Don't let this happen to you.

Give them (your target employer) a reason to say YES! Then, everything else will fall-in-place for you.

I Believe You Can...!

I’ve been unemployed since the lockdowns put my airline out of business. I knew it was going to be tough getting on at an airline so while I have been applying at any airline that’s hiring I’ve also been applying to other customer service jobs in my area. I’ve sent out hundreds of applications and am getting nothing coming back. No calls, nothing. I have over 20 years experience in customer service. I have a Bachelor’s degree. I’ve had my resume looked at by professionals, if I could afford to have one of them write it for me I would, but alas I have no money. If I can’t be a flight attendant for a while I would prefer a work from home position, I’m more than qualified to work as a call center rep or something like that. There’s a disconnect somewhere in this scenario and I can’t Figure out what it is. Why is this happening? #workfromhome #jobsearch #application #resume #interview

I was let go from my job, they called it job abandonment because I had a family emergency I need to take two weeks off. I was there for eight months I never called out sick, never requested time off, and was never late. Just because I didn’t want to give my manager specifics on why I needed time off because it was a personal family matter she told me if I didn’t show up I was abandoning my job. I’m not upset about it though. I learned a valuable lesson that day, loyalty sometimes is only one sided when it comes to the medical field. Be careful who you work for

I worked at the same company for 7 years, one day my boss grabbed me by my shirt (assaulted me) on camera . I quit the next day for that specific reason. I cant work there anymore. I filed for unemployment but was denied because the company told unemployment i quit for unjustified reason and on my own. Any ideas ? And i did appeal it also. Thanks !
