I elected to be hospitalized for treatment of anxiety/depression due to a work related situation. About 2 years ago, I started to have problems with co-workers who harrassed me due to a previous relationship I had with one of their boyfriends and I was harrassed due to the results of rhinoplasty. I sat and took harrassment for over 2 months and decided to request a change in seating arrangements to distance myself from these people, but became very depressed and had high anxiety and needed immediate intervention due to only getting 1-2 hrs of sleep nightly and losing about 30 pounds in 3 weeks time. I spent about 1 week in the hospital and returned to work and found out that my immediate supervisor called the hospital and found that I was seen for psychiatric care. I reported the incident to HR and since then, I have been labeled with an emotional disorder by my employer and have been placed off work pending psychological investigations. I know that things have occurred at work, but when I reported the incidents, they were denied by co-workers making me appear to be delusional. 2 company doctors have recommended that I be placed on an anti-psychotic and anti-depressant drug and have advised the company that I am a safety risk. My personal doctors have advised the company that I am fine and am not in need of any meds. I know that my company has a responsibility to safeguard its employees, but this over exaggeration of my mental health status has caused great frustration and I feel that even though I may be sensitive about people speaking negatively about me, I am only reacting in a normal way. My question is, has anyone ever gone through such an ordeal with an employer? I feel that since I have blown the whistle, that my employer is doing what a company usually does to a whistleblower and that is to paint that person in such a negative light and or have things said about them that will justify termination.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
