I'm Back Again!

Posted by barefut , 06 November 2009 · 840 views

Home with a sick kid today, fever, vomiting - hope it's not piggy flu!  Just got a call from my boss that they received the revised FMLA paperwork from my rheumatologist supporting my request for reduced work hours.  I never saw a copy of what my doctor wrote but the letter from my employer said 4 - 6 hours a day 5 days/week.  I was told not to come in on Monday until 2:30pm (weird) and I would get my revised work schedule then.

I'm kind of dreading that because I asked for 8:30 - 3:30, and my boss and coworkers were not happy about that. I know my hours will probably be something like 12:00pm to 6:15pm, defeating the whole purpose of asking for reduced hours in the first place - so I could get home before 7:00pm, prepare dinner for my kids, help with homework and get them to bed at a decent hour, not to mention eliminate the whole childcare problem of no facilities being open after 6:00pm.  It's not like I am asking for time off early so I can hit the tavern for happy hour (no matter how good that sounds some days).

Man it seems like nobody has a heart, or it's like, "Well I don't get any breaks so neither should you."  I'm broaching on a whole 'nother blog right now so I'd better save it.

I will keep y'all posted on what my new work schedule will be.....
I feel like I've won the battle but will ultimately lose the war.
