    I work as a monitor tech in an LTAC that has been evacuated due to
    Hurricane Gustav. we monitor our own patients plus other patients in 2
    different states. Our patients have not returned. I was asked to come
    in to work with only an unarmed security guard present in the building.
    We have a fully equipped pharmacy. When I stated I would be glad
    to work when other people are in the building, but not alone in the
    back of the building, I was told I would be terminated if I did not
    work alone. Is this legal?

    Unless there is a provision in your professional standards that would prohibit this, I don't see it being a violation of any law to require you to come to work under those circumstances.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      Nor is there any general law or regulation prohibiting you from being alone in the building.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
