Can I quit my job?

by Tram Nguyen
(San Diego, CA)

My work place is so stressful that I developed vertigo in December, it was subside for awhile and management fired another co-worker whom is over 50 years old like me. I work for this place for 2 years, since then I went through 3 managers and 4 resigned 2 got fired. It is a software company that stresses can come from angles: the clients, the programmers, the managers and unkind co-workers.


I was forced to have a on-call phone for every 4 weeks. Company doesn't pay when I carry the phone for 1 week (I carry it from 5pm to 6am) I only get pay if the phone ring and I have to turn on my laptop at home. Also, company doesn't pay internet nor holidays if I carry the phone.

My dizzy is so bad when I get to work, I just can't handle the stress anymore. I have gone to H.R for 2 months, and nothing had accomplished. Please advise.

I live in San Diego, CA.

Hi Tram,

Just from what you've told us here about your newly developed vertigo. My first question is have you been formally diagnosed by a doctor?

Veritgo is usually caused by an inner ear disorder. A catch-all term is Meniere's Disease. It can be caused by a long list of underlying problems and it can become severe enough to actually become a disability.

If you have been trying to work with HR in regard to alleviating the stress that is aggravating this condition. I want to know what, if any, medical documentation you have provided to them and what their response has been.

Let me know and we'll go from there.
