Sorry...I want to make sure I understand...what do you mean by "deduct wages for ADA"?
But what does that mean "deduct 22 hours for ADA"They are making you work the full time but then not paying you?
Thank youI understand the ADA. But I want to make sure I understand what the employer is doing (to see if it meets the ADA requirements)
So your doctor has said you need "time off", and your employer is giving you that time off? Is that correct?If not can you explain what is happening?
Thank youSo are you asking if the employer is required to pay you for this time off under ADA?
THanksAnd I agree with that language (that is the law in NJ and in all states)
But did you work from home?
Thank youThe ADA requires an employer to provide an employee with a "reasonable" accommodation for a disability
HOWEVER, the ADA does not require that the employer provide the employee with paid time off. There is nothing in the ADA that would require this
If you received time off and were not paid? That would actually be consistent with the ADA (again, the ADA does not require paid time off for employees)Now...if they made you work and and not pay you for the work? That is NOT an ADA issue...that is a basic employment law issue and you can report this to the NJ department of labor herehttp://lwd.dol.state.nj.us/labor/wagehour/complnt/filing_wage_claim.htmlBot***** *****ne: the ADA does not require they give you paid time off. But if they are not paying you wages for work you performed? You can report that to the state department of labor
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
