I've turned in all the required FMLA paperwork as completed by my Dr. and been approved FMLA. My condition requires me to have intermitent absense from work due to a cronic sinus issue that causes sleep apnea, headaches, and obviously shortness of breath. Our attendance pollicy has a requirement that we call in within two hours of the start of the shift. Even though the absence is coverd by FMLA they are trying to consider me A.W.O.L. if I miss this call in period. Wouldn't federal or state law pertaining to FMLA protect me in this situation. If I was awake to call in I could just come to work. Or assuming you know at 3-4 in the morning you haven't had any sleep your not going to set your alarm JUST to call in for work. Seams like being aproved for this leave would superseed any rules about how many hours into the shift you have to report. Anyone have any info on this! It would be greatly appreciated.
