Hello and welcome.
My name is ***** ***** my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am sorry to hear of your difficult situation. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
Your medical providers will not certify that you have a serious health condition and require time off for that? Does your employer have at least 50 employees? Have you worked there at least one full year and a minimum of 1,250 hours over the past year?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
