Ok I am here
Ok but these people work in the same office that I work in. I really do not want to go back to work because I am worried that something will happen to me. I am suffering from headaches and stomach pains. Another attorney said I should sue for IIED but it is based on extreme distress. He also said it is hard to win a case like that. If my evalation by the doctor claims IIED can I get off work into disabilty?
Having my evaluation done first would help my case with my lawyer ... right?
He is one of our board members and my boss tells him everything and I am tired of hearing how my boss is trying protect me against him when both them want me gone.
Before I do that I need to be on disablity because if I do that they will retailate against me.
They could go after my attendance since my dad is not able to take care of himself. That is their only out on me.
Yes but the did not like that I exhausted all of my sick time even though that is what it is used for.
I agree but they use that against me when I questioned other employees were using sick time they no longered have. They were using hours that they did nit have. I documented all of that and asked why this was happening and a copy of the policy where it is allowed for other employees. That is when our temp Superintendent said, "I am going to put you in a box" He knew what he did was wrong but was mad that figured it out.
Ok are you there?
Thanks for your help
I would like to give you postive rating but this service will not let me?
For the disabilty claim it says that I have to be off for eight days to file for disabilty is that correct? Also does the doctor need to sign the disabilty form or is note from her good enough?
Thanks ..... I do have sick days but I will run out by next week. I do have vacation time but I do not know if they will let me use it?
I plan to see a lawyer this week and present my case to him or her. I will let you know how it plays out. Thanks
