Hi guys, I was a part time package handler for about 4-5 months. I'm deaf so my communication with my supervisors and my co workers were not easy but we do get by. My depression was the reason of my poor attendance. I had 2 warnings from Union but I was never suspended from work. A few days after meeting with the Union I was at the hospital unexpectedly and was unable to contact my work because I didn't have a phone with me at the time and stayed at the hospital the entire week. Of course, I was worried and hoping I wouldn't get fired. When I was discharged from the hospital I immediately text my supervisor and found out I got fired because I did not show up to work for a week without notice. I was too depressed to fight back to keep my job. It's been a year and I'm in a better shape. I want to go back to work for UPS but my status for rehire is currently unavailable. I tried to called the HR office to find out if I'm on non rehire list but I waited 3 hours and my call dropped twice. Frustrated! I clicked on the "contact us" and it was nowhere near what I needed. But, I e-mailed and left some messages regarding my rehire status. I keep kicking myself for throwing away my recent hospital documents of the time when I was staying at the hospital for a week. Stupid move! I have no proofs. I don't know what else to do. Please help me on how I can get my job back. Thanks!
