regarding two individuals try to deny for the store manager sick leaf. First try to refuse his dick call , 2nd forcing him to go to work while holding the Doctor note ,& 3rd refusing to give additional time off since he has pain and when all attempt did work for them since he provide a valid Doctor note finally they change their tactic and while he is away for a week because of sikness they were digging the store to find faults which the employee feels it is a systematic harassment under the cover of the company policy. Finally they wait until his Doctor sick note ends & they set him up by calling him and told him that he will be given additional time of by approving his vacation but he was told to go to the store in person even though he repetedly told them that he can move hi arm and wanted to stay home. The person who master mind this is RSD Shawn (immediate manager of the employee) and collaborating with his boss DSD Allen. Below I am going to type what happened from the start :-

That sounds awful. Does the manager have a disability or ongoing medical condition? How many employers does the store have?

6 pages it doesn't go through,i tried 3 times. what shall do?
Employment Lawyer: Lucy, Esq., Lawyer replied 1 year ago

I don't need six pages of history. Just a basic overview, like I said earlier. I just have a few questions, and if you can answer them, I should be able to give you some direction:

  • Do you have a disability or an ongoing medical condition?
  • Does the store have a written sick leave policy and if so, what is it?
  • How many employees work for this company within a 75 mile radius at all locations?
Ask Your Own Employment Law Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i am feeling better now,no disability, the store sick policy under 3 days no doctor note if it is more than 3 days with the doctor note i can get paid from my sic hour. within 75 mile radius the company has more than 300 employees
Employment Lawyer: Lucy, Esq., Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Thank you. It sounds like this isn't an issue of disability discrimination then or an FMLA violation.

In order to bring a hostile work environment claim, an employee needs to be able to prove that his employer is targeting him (or allowing others to do so) because of his status as a member of a protected class: minority race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender. Do any of those apply to you?

do not have a proof to say right now but they did that to one senior manager a year ago.after they handy picked the new person from a diffeent race then they set her up and fired her,so it doesn't mean they won't do it again
Employment Lawyer: Lucy, Esq., Lawyer replied 1 year ago

If you have any reason to believe they're trying to fire you because of your race, document EVERYTHING. It's illegal for them to do that. You may be able to sue for reinstatement, back pay, and punitive damages plus attorney's fees. The fact that they did this before will count in your favor.
