California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Q1) 29 employees in 75 miles radius
Q2) no he has not work with us for a year, only worked here for about 5 months
I understand what you mean but this employee has been missing work a lot before and without letting me know he had this condition nor any doctor notes, he just told me that his kid been keeping him up all night and simply very tired, can I fire him from those reason? I gave him a warning last time when he missed work and said that would be the last time and the next time when he missed work, I will fire him. Next thing I know, he missed work for 3 days straight and come back with a doctor note saying he need to rest. Just because he gave me this doctor note should not make him bullet proved does it?
Ok, what about talking with a doctor to determine his condition is not a disability and he does not qualify for any special treatment?
