  • MD-Disability or Worker's Comp? Help!!

    I am a MD resident employed by the US Gov. for over ten years. Because of staff shortage, for the past year in a half I have worked 60+ hours work weeks; but only compensated for 40 hours. I have since transferred from that unit to another, still working 60+ hours and not being compensated; and to add fuel to the fire, by boss literally took me into his office one day and cursed me out because he thought that I had did something wrong. (I DID NOT) The unit that I transferred from immediately assigned 4 additional supervisors to do the jobs that I was doing alone. The long hours of work eventually caught up with me and has caused several physical and mental ailments. I have been off from work for a couple of months now. The doctor has suggested that I not return back to work. What should I do? File for worker's comp, disability, EEO? or should I just resign.

    Triplicate post. We all respond to all the employment law forums, goldie, you won't get more, better, or faster answers by posting multiple times.
    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.
