I've been on leave from work since covid started due to complications with breathing and such. I finally got the OK from my doctor to go back as the policy where I work had changed to be able to accommodate me recently. She was able to write me a note that I'm able to go back to work, but they require a note stating that I was out for the whole time. I'm guessing that it was due to at the beginning, it had pulled unpaid time off and it went into the negative. Its done that twice and I was working part way through with -UPT at the very beginning of the covid thing when I first got it, I've gone to a few different doctors and specialists, and every single one says that they cant back date a note that far. Has anyone had experience with dealing with this sort of thing? I love my job, I've been there almost 5 years. If I have to start over its going to be probably at minimum wage and where I cant get enough hours to survive. I'm hoping to not have to fight them to just keep my job. They haven't fired me, I'm still fully in the system. I'm starting to drown here and am in danger of losing my place to live. Anyone have any decent ideas on how to save this job? I REALLY don't want to have to start over, Ill lose my pay and my stocks. I'm so stressed, I may have forgot some more details, so feel free to ask anything that I may have left out. Thanks so much! #coronavirus #backtowork #help
so you did not inform them of you having covid. you used un paid time off, i here this over and over again. you should had done the proper protocol as your job requires. they did require a note that you were out of work the whole time due to covid. you also had complications due to other aliments , which caused your infliction to be much worse. you can have that same doctor document your health problems. they can provide the point of affliction and i would have him send email. that will be proof if there is a problem in a nice way with no hard feelings. No HARM NO FOLLOW.
Yeah, I had sent them an email last week, and I started back again this week. That was nice. But now the UPT and my job is in a case while they decide how to handle it. It wasnt supposed to pull UPT as I was on a medical leave but it did anyways. Very odd.
