I am in CA. I have a workman's comp claim and have been going to the WC doctor and therapy. My insurance carrier now approved for me to go see a DR which is farther away. I asked my employer to come in an hour early so I can leave an hour early (still working my 8 hrs) so I can make it to my appointment on time. My employer has told me “… are happy to be flexible when able. However, please realize depending on the frequency and day, if your schedule cannot be adjusted for any reason and you still need to take the appointment at that time, you may need to use your PTO in order to do so.” Is this legal for my employer to make me used my PTO for my WC Dr’s appointment? Please help? Is there an laws in CA about the use of PTO for WC appointment?
