I filied a eeoc charge of retaiation on feb 14th,2012 every since my employer has told me that i have 8 absences total from feb 2012- present. I told them i have asthma and allergies which at times causes me a sinus infections and or asthma flare ups. Now i'm told if i miss 8 or more absences in a year , work incomplete shifts or leave early due to illness or other emergencies it counts as an accesive absence and i could be terminated .when i asked is this policy in writing i was told it is in my union contract, when i read my contract and employee handbook it not did state accesive absences would lead to a termination. nor did it state how many absences you can miss in a year. If i was fired could i sue for wrongful termination? also what legal rights if any do i have?
