Accommodating my schedule
In passing the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in 1990, Congress attempted to level the playing field for disabled workers.
The ADA requires employers to make reasonable accommodations so that workers with disabilities can secure and retain employment.
The one time I couldn't do it, I did try to offer compromises, but he is only happy when he gets his way 100% and took me to court.
I asked the judge what was legally expected of me, but all she said was that I had to work with him.
Now that his schedule is changing monthly, you'll continue to try, but you can't guarantee that you'll be able to accommodate switching that frequently.
In the event you're unable to switch, he always has his co pt of x and x days each week that the kids wil be available for.
I want our daughter to see him, so I do my best to make this work, but would it be reasonable to tell him he's making too many changes and that we have to just go back to the written order?
I've seen a few posts on here recently about ncp's schedule changing and trying to accommodate that.
He ended up getting seniority in his position and his scheduling changes became minimal after that. He knew this when he applied for the job, but didn't tell me until after he got it.
I think the consensus is do you best to work with him.
However, we have co's that outline or pt for a reason.
I can't just say, I'm giving you my sat/sun but I'm taking your Mon and Tuesday this week (he doesn't get Mon, Tues, just a hypothetical) since I have to work sat/sun. I don't think it's right to change everyone's schedule to accommodate one person on a monthly basis, for years until he earns seniority.
For now, I'd say in the past, you've done your best to make sure he has the kids on his days off because, at most, his schedule changed quarterly.
