Article 13.4 says the union and OHSU have a list of criteria about "reasonable grounds to suspect abuse of sick leave" and one regarding employee's ability to perform duties in a safe manner. Can you send a digital copy to my email address? Our manager is saying any illness that lasts 3 days is serious enough to need note from provider to prove you are well enough to return to work. I want to start with trying to talk to her about it before filing a grievance.
Can you confirm that a grandparent is considered an immediate family member . I would like to use sick time to go to the funeral.
I have used a couple sick days for reasons related to a documented disability. My supervisor called me in stating that in a 3 month time, 3 sick days would count as 3 occurrences. He further warned that continued occurrences could lead to me being let go. I'm wondering if this is legit or not. Seems like I am being punished for using my sick leave. Is that even legal? Thanks for any information you can provide!
I submitted a quesiton re; sick time and Renee asked me a question but I don't know how to continue the conversation so I am submitting another question. yes my supervisor told me that I needed to be careful of how much sick time I was using as to not have disciplinary action taken. My understanding is when a time off request is placed for sick time and it is granted off this does not count toward disciplinary time. first quesiton am i correct with this understanding.
2nd question to Renee. What is the rule for disciplinary action in regards to sick time. I could not find it in the contract. I thought it was something like 3 occurances per quarter of UNapproved sick time. Can you direct me to the contract or policy so I can have it in writing please. thanks
with the new contract mgmt has until jan 2013 to come up with a sick policy. Until then is the old union policy for sick leave in effect?
Can i use sick leave for my kids dental appointment? In the past i have used sick time but today my supervisor is asking me to use vacation time.
Can a manager say No when I try to call in sick?
I need to know if an occurrence with flu in October counts as one occurrence or two since I was sick for 5 days over the weekend with the suspected swine Flu.
I had to be absent for two weeks because of an unforeseen emergency medical procedure, that is, the sick time was not arranged ahead of time because I didn't know I would be injured. Does that absence count as an attendance occurrence if I present a doctor's note upon returning to work indicating a procedure was required and excusing me from work?
If I am off using sick leave for 13 weeks is my job in jeopardy? I have 22 weeks of unused sick time right now.
I have retired & work 2-3 shifts a month. do I still accrue sick & vacation time??
My department's attendence policy says that "an occurence is a continuous block of time... up to several days in a row." I was out for 12 days due to illness, and now am being told that is going to count as several occurences. Is this correct?
My FMLA will run out soon and my doctor will not clear me to return to work before it expires. Does my boss have the right to fill my position if I'm going to be off work for a week or so after my FMLA expires?
Can the supervisor/manager ask for a doctors note after calling in sick for 1 day?
