Not sure if this is the right spot....
Has anyone had any experience with applying for ADA? I hate to use this method, but my HR department has recommended this for a couple of reasons.
1. I have not been at my job long enough for FMLA, otherwise this would solve the whole issue I am having with my boss.
2. My boss will not let me take time off for doctors appointments, or should I say it's very restrictive. No Monday or Friday appointments, no labwork during business hours,
no doctor appts for the next sixty days, no vacation time off approved, etc. I work M-F 8am to 5pm. I schedule what I can outside of office hours, but
lets face it doctors are generally open M-F 8-5, usually. I have several doctors notes that HR does not want to see, or need to see, but recommend ADA for
possibly pushing the issue of flexibilty with allowing for my doctors appointments.
I am salaried, I have offered to come in early, to work through lunch, etc. He says no.
I do work on an on-call rotation for a full week and weekend every couple weeks and that isn't even taken into account as how much I work. It doesn't have to be
I realize, but it would be nice.
I hate to resort it needing to file ADA, but I am at a loss. I need to get iron infusions every couple months, see my endo for my Hashi's and my regular doc for the celiac/colitis.
I should mention too, no probation for me. I have been here for five months and no write ups or anything.
Any other ideas?
