Question
I was transferred to another department in a warehouse environment. They are redistibuting people from my deparment into other department at work to even out teams.  they have taken the 3 lowest seniority employee and have sent them to other teams or dpeartments. I have a reaccuring back issue (from work) that i incurred from an area in the building where they are trying to send me permanently.  This new department requires a lot of manual lifting.  The present department has machinery that assists me to do my work. There are other departments that have people with less seniority then I do tht are not being sent to this area.  We are a canadian company that is non-unionized.  I have 15 years on the job. Do I have any recourse?
Thanks
Ryan

Answer
RYAN,

BASED  ON  YOUR  BRIEFING,

MY  SUGGESTION  IS

-get  a  specialist / your family  doctor’s  reports  on  your  back problem.

-forward  it to  your  boss/ HR  department,

-with  a  covering  letter  from  you
Requesting  that  you  be  retained  in  the current  location—till  such   time
Your  backs  get  better.

Regards
