Yeah, I had extremely mixed feelings about the whole situation myself. Figuring out an ethical course of behavior which was also in compliance with the law was complicated. At this point, in this state, as I understand it, I could not say, "If you want to keep this job, you need to take medical leave and get help for your serious mental and physical health issues," because the employee has to ask for medical leave, you can't impose it (and believe me, I offered it as an option repeatedly).

I had said a year earlier, "You can't see the computer screen well enough to do the work you're assigned, so I am taking you in for an eye exam and glasses and paying for it out of my own pocket," which was frankly pushing the line. Possibly over the line. But she needed some damn glasses.

It's really not as simple as "evil employers want to get rid of sick people." Sometimes we just want them to get better so they can come back to work.

Sending staff to a BDSM ranch, mind you, isn't something that's ever seemed to me like a good plan. I can't imagine that helping. ;>
