Customer Question

I m employed in the state of AZ. I had a visit to a hospital 3 days before my 90 day probation period was up. I then was written up and told I will go back on probation for another 90 days. Is this legal?? In fact I am not allowed to take any time off for Follow up doctor appointments etc.

Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.

Unfortunately, what you describe is legal because you have not been working for the state for at least one year. Accordingly, you are not yet protected under the medical leave act, which means that you are not entitled to take off time yet for medical needs. Having said that, it is incredibly unprofessional, though I suppose the silver lining is that you weren't terminated.

Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
