Starting to develop a vocal polyp.

Unless you can link your polyp to a condition at work, you probably will not qualify. You may qualify for leave under the Family Medical Leave Act and probably reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disability Act. You would have to consult with an attorney familiar with these laws through AVVO, your local lawyer referral service or the following two organizations, which are composed of plaintiff-side employment lawyers: www.mwela.org and www.nela.org
