FMLA AND ADASave as Favorite
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011. I have an injection once a month and this has left me fatigued. I had a week and a half off for surgery and I worked through the radiation treatment except for coming in a little late and also one day a month because of fatigue. I have asked to work 32 hours instead of 36 and my employer has approved this time until January 2013. The HR department has informed me that this is counted towards my 12 weeks of FMLA time. I have to have the shot for another four years so if this is counted towards my FMLA I would be using over half of it. The HR department is counting my hours based on 32 hours a week. Is this correct or is the FMLA 12 weeks a year regardless of the hours that you work? Do I also have protection under the ADA?
