Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
Yes, you can work provided you can counter the effects of Vicodin. You will be extremely drowsy which will hamper your activities, hence, it is up to you whether you can go ahead with your shift.
The organisation is not going to stop you from working, but it is better not to share the information with them.
Hope this was helpful,
