I was hit by a truck years ago and it left me with damage to my brain. I now experience chronic migrianes and much more from the accident. I have fmla for whenever I get sick. I came to work to push through and my heads pounding with a migraine and I'm really sick from the doctor upping my meds on me yesterday and they are trying to mandate me in the morning. I told them I am using my fmla because I'm sick and I have a migraine right now and that I was gping to call off but I came in and pusbed through for them because we are short staffed. And they told me I have to talk to the don because she will tell me if I can use it or not. I dont understand how they can refuse my fmla especially when I have only uaed it 3 times in the morning and I have had it for a year now. Its not like I'm abusing it, for everytime I get hit I only use it for when I'm really sick with my migraines.

We are a NJ small employer and provide our employees with six (6) paid sick days per year. Employees earn 1/2 sick day per month and we have an employee who has already used up all of his sick pay. This employee is an exempt employee and therefore we cannot pay him for days he calls out. Despite the fact that all employees are aware of the sick pay policy this individual employee has abused the policy. What if any recourse do we have to discipline this employee?Since he has abused the company's sick pay policy is that cause for termination?
