I ask because I had an extensive illness, which I had to apply for fmla for and take a 2 month leave for. I went back to work because I had to financially, but I was not ready ... so long story short, I took too many days out. Enter a new manager, and I was fired. I had been there for five years, and the new manager was not aware of my situation. My ilness affected me physically as well as psychologically. I have since recovered, or rather , properly treated, and fully able to focus on work. Has anybody, or ever known anybody, who has gone back, explained this, and been re hired? I need advice, I need this job back. Please give any advice you can. Thanks in advance. !!
