Time away from work in Sclero Forums (MAIN) Posted March 9, 2010 · Report reply I was just wondering how you guys deal with having to take time away from work. The company that I work for requires that we have a leave of abscence (long term or intermittent). I have been using the intermittent leave (stomach/bowel involvement makes it necessary) but they require that it be renewed every 3 months and the doctor charges $100 dollars for the first page and $75 for every page thereafter, it gets really expensive (3 pages for our packet)! I have tried explaing to our corporate HR that this is something that is not curable at this time (hopefully that will change soon!!!) and cost just for paperwork is outrageous and of course insurance covers none of that expense. Have any of you ran into this problem and do you guys know if this the mandated routine for a leave of absence or just the company that I work for? ANY advice is greatly appreciated!
