Ok, so my issue has been going on for over a year, with no resolution. I'm hoping someone can provide constructive advice for getting things resolved.
I work in a corporate office, and they already have a scent-sensitive policy in place. I've been here for 4 years, and the same poster has been on the wall the entire time. For the last 14 months, there have been coworkers who have been using scented products while in the office. One lady sprayed so much perfume I was gagging, I approached her gently, she then used the same scent lotion daily all over her body and didn't understand why that was still a problem.
I have brought it to my manager's attention, the department director's attention as well as HR's attention. Two emails have been sent out by the director, just generic "hey we have this policy" type emails, literally the same verbiage both times. One person (the original and main offender) stopped, but recently I've noticed more people using highly scented products in the office.
It almost happens daily. After the most recent email was sent out (about a month ago), the very next day, someone had a wax warmer at their desk, I had to go home sick, and was violently ill for two days. I have a note from my neurologist that I am sensitive to scents and they trigger migraines for me, and it is noted in my employee-file.
Since it has been going on for such an extended time period, and all parties are aware of what is going on, is there anything else I can do? I am beyond frustrated that other people's inability to follow the rules that are physically posted keep effecting my job.
