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.

" The cost of center-based child care — as opposed to family child care — jumped by 44 percent." - Politico

The high cost of child care and lack of paid leave are serious issues for working parents. How do we encourage employers to offer more child care benefits?

Carry out my job duties as a dishwasher supporting a restaurant/banquet operation. I work for VFW Post 1215 in Rochester, MN. My exposure can be limited to receiving bus carts delivered by serving staff and food prep pots, pans and utensils delivered by cook staff. I would don face mask to deliver clean items to designated stations throughout the establishment. Any necessary communication with coworkers could be accomplished within social distancing guidelines. I'm optimistic for reopening. #backtowork #paytherent #paybills

I had an accident at home about two years ago and my left leg was amputated. I healed just fine and I’m doing good now but I want to get back into trucking. Can I do it since I am missing a leg? Anyone know how I can do this? Thank you!

So I need advice how to get back to work after months of being sick ..Also this is starting over somewhere new after working at a job for over a decade. How do you not fear it and embrace it when you love to work you just want to be a good fit no matter where you go and not worry about being judged.

On 07/15/17, I was hit by a car while walking. God was too GREAT to me! I didn't have any broken bones, but had a fractured pelvis/ lower back. I ended up in a wheelchair for three months! I wasnt eligible for disability because my employer doesn't take out taxes. Thank God for family! My family paid my rent, bills, and bought food for me or brought cooked food to me. I'm ever so thankful! My boss welcomed me back to work! My doctors release date was 10/02/17. My boss saved a case for me and I began work on 10/04/17. God is too AWESOME! In addition, my eldest became engaged in Paris! I'm super happy and excited about life!

I haven't had a job since 2003 when I got married and moved to a different city. My husband didn't want me to work at all, Didn't know at the time he was controlling. Anyways this year I got my first car and I told my husband I'm getting a job to help bring in money for the growing piles of bills and getting more groceries then his small budget. So since April I've applied to at east a dozen places that are around my little town and the closest towns. I won't work at fast food, I did that when I was younger and going back as 30 something and dealing with kids won't make my days better. The only call I got was for a cafeteria assistant for the high school but I have to pay for a background check and it's the $70 one. They want me to pay before they even tho about me for the job. One problem I don't have a way to bring in money to even pay for one. It's like why do I have to pay just to have the job, to me it's stupid, I'm there for their company and they should pay not me. When I apply I put down the last jobs I had but there is a big 15 year gap. What can I do to put in the why a big gap.
