Anyone here familiar with FMLA?

Illustration for article titled Anyone here familiar with FMLA?

According to the absence management department at my company I have exhausted all of my allowable FMLA time. I’m waiting to hear back from them as to what my options are at this point. I was out a month for surgery and then in the hospital for pulmonary embolism, all cancer related. I do call off frequently due to nausea and fatigue, but I only have about a month or so to go on chemo and then I should be back to normal. As harsh as this is to say, I’ve had many co-workers go on FMLA for cancer, but sadly most of them passed away before they exhausted their allowed time. I’m a survivor and will beat this illness, but I don’t want to end up on the street and without insurance...
