Re: Requesting a new chair at work
I would explain the discomfort your having, see how they respond. Or ask other co-workers before you go the boss, and see if you can get feel for how they would respond.
you could always offer to pay for it, and keep the chair if you leave. I brought my own chair from home (I'm a teacher) so I bring it home after the school year. how bad is this?-our secretary has gotten 3 different chairs for her back, I asked for one and was denied!! a little favoritism in my workplace!
my sister had back surgery several years ago, and her place of employment bought her a new chair, she went through insurance and it didn't cost the copy hardly anything. I will talk to her and see how she did it, and I'll post again!
good luck and let me know what you do!
