I have been at my current job for almost 4 years and in my current position for almost 2 years.
My job requires me to be in families homes and I haven't been making all my "contacts" due to my panic attacks on top of my Crohn's. My supervisor has and had been aware of this from the beginning. Now I'm being disciplined because I didn't have "current" documentation of unable to my job duties. Anyway my question is... Isn't the point of FMLA papers is to have documentation of your illness and to state that there are times that you may not be able to perform your job duties and miss work? Or do I have this all wrong?
I've already spoke to an attorney and he seems to think I have a case but of course I don't have the $$ and my employer twists things to their favor.
Has anyone experienced this and if you have, has anyone followed through with suing?
I'm stressed which doesn't help the gut. I did find a new job that fits better with my Crohn's but it's a HUGE pay cut and the insurance is expensive...
