I have been out sick on and off since beginning of October. I was diagnosed with a respiratory infection. My physician put me out of work until end of Oct but I did not proceed to listen (I am being honest) and returned to work sooner. When I returned to work, I was still sick and had to leave work again to go back to the dr's. I received notification from my employer that I am out of PTO and currently negative. I have provided all my dr's notes to HR - and shown my attempt that I tried to work even when I was sick, even based on my dr's judgement. I am nervous that I will be fired due to unpaid time off. I still am not able to return to work. Would I have a just reason to file unemployment if I am fired? Or would this be my fault. I have been given no write ups, warnings. I am 4 months new on the job but have never been fired or had gaps in my employment, ever. I make apprx 90k a year and close to ~4800 a month in paychecks. How long will an employer let you stay out of work with a drs note if you have no PTO left? I am looking into filing NJ Short Term but my dr is attending in the hospital until the 5th of Nov. and no other covering doc will sign the note as they have no clinically assessed me. To make matters worse, I have found out I am pregnant. I do not qualify for FMLA as I have not been not his job for 12 months. They advise me I only have 7 days to get them my paperwork when I speak to the HR department. Is this true?

Thanks

Check out FMLA..................Family Medical Leave Act


The Employer must grant you leave up to 12 wks a year as long as your a full time employee .Now to get paid you must have sick leave on the books ,if you have no leave then it would be time off unpaid. Most Companies HR departments have the paper work that should be filled out by a Doctor. At least this is the way it use to be ,........I'm retired.

$4,800 times 12 months equals $57,600.

I see.


Did your employer start giving you a hard time about your illness before or after they learned you are pregnant? Or, do they not know that?
