2 days approved time off a month in advance on an internal electronic approval system.
3 write ups for past absences within a 2 year period. None in 2014.
Thursday-Recovery from dentist
Friday-WorkedLet's make it more interesting... I was written up in October of 2013 for absence and suspended (not in anyway stating that I was your model employee) but broke my ankle in that time and was not able to return to work the day I was expected to. It was explained to me that I was not able to have any, whatsoever contact with my employer while suspended. Unfortunately, the break was so bad I had to wait 12 days prior to surgery for swelling to go down. The day I was supposed to go back was the day of surgery (all can be proven by medical records). I spoke to my employer about the situation prior to the time I was expected to return to work. Once I was in surgery my wife was harassed by my supervisor by three different phone calls requesting the the operating room fax over an excuse letter and to speak with me immediately after my surgery. It goes on from there but I was submitted for FMLA and covered till the day I was let go... The "MONDAY" appointment with my doctor was covered under FLMA.
