Hi everyone, I just joined the company a few months ago and the Manager emphasised that if filing for sick leave, a medical certificate must be filed together with the form but it must be dated on the same day as of the claimed sick leave. Saturdays and Sundays are my regular work days. I advised last Saturday that I cannot go to work because of migraine. They were expecting me to see a doctor on that day to get a medical certificate. Everyone knows that migraine makes you immobile. How do they expect me to drive to a doctor? If I do, I will die in a car accident just to get a medical certificate. Moreover, there are no doctor's clinics on weekends too. It is stupid to go to ER just for a migraine and ask for a medical certificate. I went to the doctor today and he cannot back date the medical certificate though he indicated the day that I had a migraine. I know my manager will not accept the medical certificate and he would not approve of my sick leave. Everybody at work tells me that it is a hopeless case. Is this legal? Please guide me. Thanks!
