I really need some advice. My boss called me today and asked when my FMLA was going to expire. I told him I was on like a temporary FMLA to make it to my Dr appts. approx 3 hours a month i need. And before I could answer him on the date, He raised his voice and said "thats not what I asked you, I will repeat myself again, and ask you what day does your FMLA expire? I was dumb founded. then i heard an echo and asked if I was on speaker phone. He said yes you are. I told him FMLA expires May 15th. He then asked me. Are you planning on renewing your FMLA? I hesitated wondering why out of the blue he is being mean and asking me these questions. So my answer to him, It is up to my Dr. on when I am released. Once again he raised his voice to me. and says, That is not what I asked you. Stop making me repeat myself. Are you planning on renewing your FMLA> At this time I am very upset and the tears are pouring down my face. I told him I dont know what you want me to say. He is now frustrated with me and says Well arent you getting better??? Iam thinking to myself when will i ever get better and feel this is none of his business. So I answer to him, I believe My Dr. and I will feel it nessasary to renew my FMLA. Now he is really mad. and he says, I dont understand you should be getting better. So if you renew, then how much time to plan on taking off? Now I am sweating and shaking, and I told him I dont know but hope to keep it at the same 3 hours a month. He said he will not hold me to the 3 hours a month, but he has 3 other employees under his comand that are on FMLA and he needs to know if he will need to look to hire for extra overtime while he is short staffed. He then asks to speak to another girl in the office who is on FMLA that takes off 1 day every 2 mos because of her daughter that has a spinal problem, My boss also layed into her as well. I am so so mad to be treated this way. This is unfair. It is hard enough to work full time with this DD and not let it show. Keep a smile while your in pain. I am a very hard worker, my boss just gave me a raise. He now has me training a new employee. He always tells me how much he appreciates my hard work. I have customers that complement me and send letters to the company on my friendlyness and profesionalism. I get along with all my co-workers. So why out of the blue do I get this call.?? And is it rigth that I am being treated in this manner. Dont I have any rights. I have not told my boss that I have FM, and next month testing starts for Lupus. And the tumors on neck are getting tested as well as my goiter is enlarged. I havent told any co-workers what is wrong, but they only know I have a bad back. But I am sure they do see me when my muscles spasm that my body starts to twitch. Thank you for letting me vent. sorry so long. cindy ps. to top it off he is comming to visit my office tomorrow. ugh!
