I am a leasing/office asst. agent and my boss was gone from the office for 2 weeks. During the second week after being by myself, I began to feel my blood pressure rising/166/100. I called the dr. and he wanted to see me. I called my boss and she told me that the office had to remain open. I called the boss over her to get permission over her, since there was no guarantee that I was able to come back. There was only 3 hours left for the office to close. The dr. had me off work for the following 3 days. My boss was angry and told me to send the dr's note and write a letter stating that I couldn't perform my duties, all to be sent to HR. Of course I refused! So now coming back to work on Monday. She basically took all responsibilities from me as her assistant and is paying me only half commission on the Move Ins that I did because the files weren't set up. I told her I wasn't going to argue with her. So I let be. Is this against the labor law?
Regardless of the law, in your situation I would definitely supply all the information asked for by your employer in order to demonstrate good faith.
Your employer has no real way to know if you just wanted to close the office early for a beer or if your telling the truth. In this case, your doctor should have no problem supplying the required paperwork for you making it easy for both you and your employer. Specifically, the Doctor should state the recommendation of you not being able to work.
Best bet in these scenarios is to be as cooperative as you can and provide the required documentation -- especially in your case where its easy to do so.
