- Working as a data science consultant
- Sustained a back injury during my military service (with medical documentation)
I have been asked to work until 1-2am for a week performing physical labor, lifting of boxes to support a client project despite having sounded out my medical condition. Due to a lack of manpower, we juniors (I'm one of them) had to abandon our daily tasks to support this effort.
During that week, I took a day off with a medical certificate due to my aggravated back condition. Upon returning back to work, I was sent back to the client place with the same exact physical tasks as the project is still ongoing.
During my less than half a year of working in this company, this is my first non-job scope related task.
How should I handle future occurrences of such events?
