Thanks for the clarification. Fact is if you feel that you cannot perform your duties on the shift assigned you should not accept this assignment. As I said above in my state if you accept and something happens you can lose your job and license. If you refuse you may lose your job, but not your license. As it says above check your requirements in your state. Sound like what it comes down to is you feel u are physically unable to do anything more than paperwork. If this is the case maybe have your dr say so in your papers and hope to God that you have any work to perform because as I also said above my facility has NO light duty. You get hurt you stay home until you can perform your full duties agin. Good luck
