I see you found my first answer too general. I don't know how much more specific I could have been under the circumstances -- however, before you decide to leave feedback in the future, if you ask me specific questions, then I will be happy to give you specific answers.
That said, you asked:
Since they questioned my absentee for that specific day, and they are questioning my excessive other absentees, I am upset. The manager met with me and wrote a statement confirming that my absentees have been an on-going problem. So in return, eventhough I just completed my Workers Comp treatments, and have medical clearance for a separate issues, I decided to go on Medical Disability. Does this look bad on me, since the manager technically wrote me up, and I in return went on disability?
A: The issue here is whether or not you are being retaliated against for exercising your rights to workers compensation benefits (which is illegal), or whether the employer is simply acting on your failure to perform your job adequately (in the employer's view). This is not a question with a definitive answer -- only a judge could decide after hearing all of the facts and circumstances.
As a separate matter, if you are having difficulties performing your job, for whatever reason, you can request "reasonable accommodations" under the ADA (which means nothing more than informing the employer (best done in writing) that you need such accommodations (and you don't even have to state what accommodations you require), and then it becomes the employer's obligation to try to find accommodations that will permit you to perform your job. The employer could still fire you, if it believes that accommodating you will create an undue hardship -- but if it does so, then you can file a discrimination charge with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing -- or hire a lawyer and sue.
To file a DFEH charge, see this link.
For an employment rights attorney referral (including either workers comp violations or disability discrimination), see this link.
Hope this helps.
