You can argue against it but only up to the point. They acknowledge your concern but then will do what suits them.

My daughter actually left a job that wasnít what they described to her. She had two jobs offers and she went with the one that offered more money and job description matching what she wanted but when she started it was mostly not what she was told. She was bored out of her mind. Her job field is a combination of couple of things and depending on the set up, it could be more one thing over the other. When she asked them, they said her tasks will vary so eventually it would be more of what she wanted. But she didnít want to sit and wait. She left that job in a few months but she found a new job first.
I see your points and thanks @divine1966.

I have contacted an employment lawyer to help me. I will pay the consultation fees to help me to secure and to also qualify for unemployment benefits. I hope I have a good case case for it.

I spoke with a lawyer last night for one hour. She says I have a stronger claim and case for mental health breakdown occurring in order to qualify for unemployment, but I first must make every effort to make things work and to bring my issue to my supervisor. I don't know if I wish to divulge mental health issues to my supervisor though. Last time I did that it seemed to have backfired on me a bit.

I survived another week somehow. Brutal. Very taxing. I also was up at 3 AM on 2 nights - UGH. But I survived. Pay day this week - the only positive.

Well, I am in a psych ward now with Covid and just signed an offer letter to have. my old job back lol, The CEO approached me about a job, knowing how miserable I am in the current and offered me a position! The two people who had been above me in that company have both been fired since! So no more toxic work environment,

What I am cracking up over is this is all happening while I am in a psych ward and no one has any idea.

I get to give my notice on Monday for this horrid job. I am giving one week's notice - they may even say, stay a couple days, then go. Who knows? I am SO happy to. be leaving this horrific job that essentially landed me in the psych ward with psychotic symptoms.

Everyone who cares about me says it was the stress of this job that did me in - and the bullying. I think I was re-traumatized by the bullying and that put me in a far more vulnerable state.

Either way, I leave the hospital tomorrow and I give my notice on Monday. I may take a full week off before I start my new/old job again.

It's Monday, and I've decided to not even give one week's notice. Today is going to be my last day at this job. I am telling my boss this morning. Screw them. This job made me sick.

Hopefully they donít object to that. If they do...Can you give a resignation letter but not work for a week due to current health problem. Do they know about you being in a hospital? You might not be ready for work for all they know .

They did not object. They were surprised and bummed about it, but I just matter of factly stated that today is my last day.
