Why is it when I look at the current contract on this website does it still have the heading of 2012 - 2015? Can this be updated?
if I am put on restrictions by my doctor due to my pregnancy and if my boss says that they are unable to accommodate me, what are my options? Can I be forced to be put on maternity leave early and would this affect fmla?
I am interested in taking a 6 month personal leave of absence starting in March of 2015. I have already spoken with my manager and was given positive feedback, but have yet to be given a firm definite "yes." I just want to make sure I cover all my bases and do whatever I need to see that this happens. Is this something you can help with? Thank you, Kasey
I recently received a response but wasn't clear, sorry to be a repeat offender. Does my manager have the right to tell me I have to get a Dr.'s note for taking a day of OFML to take care of my Son? We don't always take him in when he is sick, and unless you're going to the ER they usually do not have appointments available the same day. Thank you again!
Flex time -- is the Flex sacheduling still exist? I thought I had flex time, where i could take off for a dr.'s visit and make the time up later? apparently my supv said there is no more flex time.
I have an interview scheduled within OHSU -- how do I request leave for this? Is there an amount of time I have to give notice for requesting leave? Do I have to fill out an official request form?
i have a grandmother who has past and was wondering if we get grievance pay or how this works.
I have been called to jury duty. Do I get full (partial) pay for my time serving?
Can I work for another company while on FMLA when it benefits the person I care for?
If the Union votes and approves to strike, how will that affect my vacation?
bearevement leave, I have FMLA for my father and mother, my father passed away if my sik time is exhausted do I have to use vacation to attend the memorial service.?
I had FMLA to cover my fathers recent illness which lasted several weeks, I also had FMLA for my mother who is handicapped, When my father passed away I had used up my sick leave, my supervisor entered vacation time for bearevement leave for his memorial. I did not wish to use vaction for this "unpaid leave" can my supervisor force me to use vacation time for this. I believe the contract states I "may" use any accrued leave>
I ask my supervisor if I can take an unpaid day since I work in clinic with a Doctor but she will be out that day. She states I have to use my accrual time for this but I don't want to use my vacation time for this. I though unpaid leave was optional? Can you please clarify.
What protections, if any, do I have in the event that a mental health professional recommends leave from work? Is there any scenario under which an employee may receive a paid leave?
I am currently on FMLA. I am working on coming back, but from what my supervisor has said, I think they plan on putting me on probation when I return. Can they do that?
When an employee is on FMLA, are they required to make up any missing hours?
Yesterday, due to a complete power outage for several hours, CHH was shut down mid-afternoon and employees on our floor (& I'm sure others) were told to go home before their scheduled end of workday. I believe employers need to pay the employees for the time lost but cannot find it in the contract.
