I have received 60% of my sick leave a few times, and I have used it all. No FMLA applied, I was carried sick.
HelloOk. Thank you.I am sorry to hear of this matter. Unfortunately, if the illnesses, absences, surgeries, etc were not work related then in my review of Rule 73 the NYTA is in legal right to bring about a termination.I suggest that if your illnesses are deemed to be a disability you may file with the NY Human Rights CommissionAs per the NY law: New York City's Human Rights Law156 provides: 16. (a) The term "disability" means any physical, medical, mental or psychological impairment, or a history or record of such impairment. (b) The term "physical, medical, mental, or psychological impairment" means: (1) An impairment of any system of the body; including, but not limited to: XXXXX XXXXX system; the musculoskeletal system; the special sense organs and respiratory organs, including, but not limited to, speech organs; the cardiovascular system; the reproductive system; the digestive and genito-urinary systems; the hemic and lymphatic systems; the immunological systems; the skin; and the endocrine system; or (2) A mental or psychological impairment. I suggest that contacting the Human Rights Commission may be a good place to startHere is the link for more information in that regardhttp://www.nyc.gov/html/cchr/html/complaint/filing-complaint.shtmlI hope that this information is helpful.

You really shoud not be giving Poor ratings when Clearly true and correct information is provided. When you do that, it hinders the professional's ability to continue helping those who need it via this website.Thank you
My illness is not deemed a disability. I am just not able to return to work by 10/21/2013. I will not be able to return until January 2014.
