I am still working and have an FMLA. Last year everything was normal, I could just call in, but suddenly this year, HR needs a note from the doctor's office each time I'm out even though my FMLA says I will be out sick 3-4 x month.
So each time I'm out sick with Fibro pain, or a Migraine, or IBS, or Gluten Intolerance I have to get a note from the doctor's office. I feel like I'm being expected to get a note from my mommy. AND then when I call the doctor's office I feel like I'm bothering them, even though I'm doing exactly what they said to do as far as getting a note faxed to work. I feel like they're over hearing from me already.
Does anyone else have these problems?
Termination or a change in my job is eminent, but just the threat. You know how stress makes Fibro, Migraines, IBS worse...
Don't tell me to call in if that's not what I'm supposed to do.
Don't tell me to have this paperwork filled out by my doctor if I'm going to have to have them contact you each time I'm feeling bad anyway.
So then I come in on really bad days. But should I stay out on even more of the really bad days?
