How many employees does the company have at your location or close by?
19employees at 2 sites
What state are you in?
The ADA can require that the company allow you to use your time for treatment but there is no clear cut line at when it becomes too much.
They don't have enough employees for FMLA to apply unfortunately.
Yes I investigated that. I just don't know how they can say I am using too much when I have a lot of hours in my bank to use.
The ADA can provide some amount of protection but as I said there is no clear line that applies. You may want to consider having a local lawyer draft a letter for you and mention in there that you need to take your time off to get treated as a "reasonable accommodation under the ADA".
That is what I will do then. Thank you very much for your answer.
I'm glad to be of assistance.
Talk to the lawyer about whether you would rather have the letter sent on their letterhead or come from you directly.
