Well last week my Dr faxed all the paperwork. The HR manager has been putting off talking with me all week.
Now I am sick today and off work.
She sent me several emails that I did not return the paperwork. She had given me a copy of the fax the Dr sent and I was supposed to give it back with a form. So I emailed it to her from home.
I got this response:
To explain: once you get the papers from your doctor you need to present them and the request for leave form back to me within the 15 calendar days.
Once I review your request and the doctor’s paperwork, I will issue the designation notice stating if the leave is approved or not.
You asked me to give you the fax the other day and remember I said we needed to sit and talk about this. So we need to finish the process to ensure that the leave you are requesting and what the doctor’s information states is applicable under the FMLA guidelines.
Strange huh? She keeps making it sound like I might not be approved for intermittent leave!
I want to scream!!! When I was the one making these decisions I never questioned the Dr, I am not a nurse and I feel if the Dr says an employee needs to be off then who am I to question that.
Thanks for letting me vent!
