I just graduated from college in August and received a job with my degree in healthcare. Therefore, it’s a new job and you always want to make a great impression. Well, around the beginning of December I started to become very sick and a couple days (only 4) I ended up going home early from work. Every time I did though I at least worked 4-5 hours and found another person to fill in for me. Of course I only left because I was really ill with vomiting and diarrhea. No one wants to be at work when you have those symptoms. I was diagnosed in January with Crohn’s Disease. However, because of going home early because I was sick those couple of day my boss decided to be a jerk and write me up, which I took completely person as a dig at my character. I’m not one to just go home from work for the heck of it. I talked to Human Resources to see if I could get some kind of help as far as the Family Medical Leave Act. They stated I don’t qualify until after a year of employment and there was nothing else I could do. I am still in the flare up so I have to suffer at work and if I even call in once during the next six months I will get written up and then fired. Is this even legal? I feel so mistreated and alone. My boss doesn’t understand and I have even tried to explain it to him but he needs a concrete “plan”. There is no plan as to when I will get better. It’s random. I will feel totally fine and the next hour I could be throwing up and having diarrhea. Someone help!!!!!! This isn’t fair, I’m afraid of losing my job and I just started my career!
