Legal Question

Asked on: 6/26/13, 10:08 am

I was feeling horrible so I went to the Medical Dr. who treated me for high blood pressure but also refered me to a Psychiatrist to talk about issues I was dealing with at work. They said it was Depression, and work related Adjustment Disorder with Acute Anziety. I was taken off work for 1-week at the beginning of December and 1-week at the beginning of November. I got disciplined for my attendance when I returned the first time and was treated horrible by my manager for the next 5-months. I was told that I could use my "sick pay" for the LOA's and I did. A co-worker told me that the same thing happened to her and she took FMLA. When I asked about FMLA, the office assistant said it wasnt an option so I used my sick hours. Could this of been a workmans comp or disibility claim? Should they of offered it cause they were totally aware of what was going on? I no longer work there and will lose my insurance shortly which means I will no longer be under my Dr.s care for this and that scares me. Is it too late to do anything now since it happened in Dec/Nov.?
