I need advice on this situation...
Thesituation is that my fiance got sick on May 13th and was admitted to thehospital on May 16th with cellulitis in his leg, I took off the beginningof the week (May 18-20) because he had two surgeries... I've been at this company for 3 1/2 years but recently became an official employee and am still on probation and do not havetime accumulated to take off but it was an emergency. The company I work at does not have a human resources department so this is my problem...
-Wefound out on May 19th he also contracted MRSA while he was in the hospital. Ihad been in contact with my supervisor and co-worker during this time and toldthem of his new condition, not really knowing what it was.
-I wasasked on May 20th to go to the doctor and get checked to confirm I did not alsocontract MRSA. When I asked his physician and nurses they said it is notsomething I should be worried about because it is difficult to contract. I toldthis to my supervisor and still was asked to go to a doctor and getchecked.
-I thenwent to an Urgent care on May 21st and was told bythe physician there that it was pointless to test me because I wasnot showing any symptoms of MRSA. I could not get a note fromany physician stating I do not have MRSA because I was not thepatient of his physician and the Urgent Care would not test me.
- Hewas released on May 22nd and told he could go back to work by hisphysician.
- OnMay 26th I tried to return to work and I was asked to leave until they couldfigure out what to do with me considering the situation. I am still off workbecause they have not determined what is appropriate. They have said I am"Working from home" but I don't really know what that means and therehasn't been anything for me to do from home.
- Today,June 2nd, I received a voicemail from the Presidents assistant,stating that they still have not figured out what to do and that they wouldlike me to work from home for the rest of the week and requested the phonenumber of my fiancés doctor so she can call him and get a release note forme... I don't feel that this is appropriate because I am not the patientof the doctor and I feel like this is an invasion of my fiancés privacy.
What are my rights?
