I work in Wva and I have a very serious lung condition. My boss is going to move my desk out in the lobby because she does not want me and the other girl having private conversations. (someone overheard us say we hated to work saturdays). If I am put in the lobby I will directly in front of the main doors where all the wind, rain and cold weather is. She knows I get sick very easy. ( I am on oxygen at night) if I get sick from this is she responsible since my desk right now is in the main building?

You should speak with your physician for a statement (Physician Statement), that because of your lung condition, this exposure would be detrimental to your health. Have you put a Request for A Medical Accommodation in to your employer? Be sure to keep copies of yours as well as their communtications, as well as a work journal.
Any medical issues that correspond to assisting deteriorization in your condition should be documented. I am not a professional or a legal expert. However, I can only tell you what I have personnally been through myself.
It is not easy having medical issues and trying to work. My job ended with total hip replacement, and because there were really no "real" accommodations, a knee was replaced later. Good luck to you.
Goldenfleece, in view of the fact that no one answered the question at the time, I'm not going to chastise you for responding to a four month old thread. But for the future, please do not respond to dead threads.
I edited your post to remove the link to the law firm. We cannot endorse, recommend or refer to specific firms or attorneys for liability reasons. If you yourself work for that firm, you may include a link to it in your signature as long as you do not actively encourage posters to use it. Otherwise, no referrals, okay? :cool:
