Re: sick leave
Depending upon the size of the company, how long you have worked for the company and how many hours you have put in during the past year, you may be eligible for medical leave under the medical family leave laws. But you must contact H.R. and request medical leave. You also must produce a doctor's note, upon request. If H.R. says you are not eligible, check with a local labor law attorney or the Dept. of Fair Employment and Housing, just to be sure they are correct.
