Attorney Stanley Gipe takes a call from a listener who was fired by his employer for having several life challenges fall into his lap ultimately affecting his attendance at work. Stan Gipe explains the options you have as an employee, through FMLA, to protect your right to having time off for sick leave if you fall ill.
