Everything started in december of last year when I requested a leave of absence to deal with personal matters. my girlfriend passed away in august and a close friend passed away 2 weeks later. In September I was advised that my oldest brother was terminally ill. My performance on the job declined and I was considering quitting my job. I requwsted 6 month leave of absence but was only granted 3 months...I had to decide whether to return to work or resign in March...I reluctantly chose to return to work..my performance continued to be below standard and management began taking action against me and demanding that I improve my performance.
I think that this is heading in the wrong direction. Since they acknowledged my problems by allowing me to take 3 months off they shoulkd continue to help me and not punish me.
