    Only if you have an injury/issue that prevents you from actually doing the work required.

    Going on disability for having pain in my neck, doctor told me no heavy lifting for 4-6 weeks .... that wouldn't affect me when I apply for the driving gig would it???

    Not if you can return to your normal duties before then. Things may be different where you are, but in my building, you don't get a call concerning PT or FT driving positions if you're currently out with an injury, on TAW, or on disability.

    Not if you are released to perform any job in the building. I have seen drivers on disability not allowed to bid a different route because they were out on disability.

    In the future? No. But if you get the call before you're back at work on full duty, you'll miss your shot this time.

    The key words here are "on full duty". No restrictions.

    If you have an annual intent sheet that you signed and you get called while you are on disability, your name may be removed for the rest of the year. If your name comes up while you are out, you should call HR as soon as you are cleared to full duty so you can be put on the list again.

    Absolutely not. Get back to full duty and bit. In most places HR manages the bids. There won't be any type of "disability retaliation"
