I have Hashimotos thyroiditis & gave my employer a list of symptoms that can occur. I used an FMLA day because I had a cough, fever, & couldn't swallow. The ER MD said I had viral laryngitis & viral sinusitis. When I returned to work my supervisor said that my illness wasn't listed on my FMLA paperwork and gave me sick leave.

I am employed with the social security administration. I am currently on leave without pay due to several medical issues. I have been off work since 09/27/16 and just received notice on 12/29/16 that my FMLA had been approved dating back to 09/27/16. I requested Reasonable Accommodation on 10/26/16 and as of 01/03/17 have not been given a decision. I filed an EEO complaint on 01/03/17. My EEO counselor notified me that she was awaiting an answer from management about participating in an Alternative Dispute Resolution on 01/11/17. I have not received any feedback at this date. What do I do?

I work in a hostile environment and it is destroying my health.I have raised this with two of my senior managers who already knew my situation, but they chose to do nothing. I am debating going on terminal leave even though I will be leave without pay for a few weeks. I can retire Oct. 31, but I do not think my health will allow me to stay. I've been out of the office so much due to the bullying that the medical community has advised me to find a new job for the last 5 years.I really do not want to fight back, I just want to leave. I'm looking for options. What do you think?

What to do if I am put on administrative leave without pay?

I want to know what I can do regarding being put on administrative leave without pay today in a clinic where I work as a nurse. I was only told that reason involves me getting verbal order to give shot to a client, gave the shot and then the provider said that no verbal order was given. I was told not to come back to work, that the clinic would investigate and get back to me within a week. How can I defend myself? Is the clinic allowed to not pay me while I am on leave? Am I entitled to unemployment while I am on administrative leave? Thank you for any suggestions you may have.The clinic is in California. The employment is a full time job.

I am a federal employee of the VA for the last 8 yrs, a

I am a federal employee of the VA for the last 8 yrs, a physician. I have had to be out due to illness more than I or they would like, which has included about 35 leave without pay days, that they approved. I received a work certificate that said I needed to have doctor's notes when out sick, which I have done. My bosses never discussed it with me and I never was reprimanded. Now I am informed they are trying to terminate me without the due process that VA employees usually get. I am unsure if I should use the union or a lawyer. The union guy keeps telling me just to relax and that he will tell me when to get a lawyer (which he finally admitted would be after I was fired and he would just tell me to quit then anyway so a termination is not on my record!) The union person seems passionate, and acts as if he is buddies with the director who "knows what is going on," but he still tells me I have a 50% chance of being fired!!!! He has not really counciled me as to the next steps, such as he finally told me I would have to give an oral response to the director, which I was unaware of, but is not telling me how to do it. I consulted a lawyer who seems to have worked with the VA before but she is expensive, and doesn;'t seem to know the system of my VA as well as the union guy does. Unsure what to do- union or lawyer. Anyone with specific VA or federal experience I could really use your advice about this, and about what to do in general. Thanks.
