PDF Editor FAQ

What is the most disgusting thing you have ever had to terminate an employee for?

Well, this happened to my wife, not me.My wife’s had a 25-year career as an HR professional. She started out as a recruiter, but she’s done everything from payroll management to terminations to responding to legal challenges to unemployment claim denials.The unfortunate termination revolves around FMLA. FMLA, or Family and Medical Leave Act, provides for unpaid leave for employees when medically necessary for themselves or immediate family members. Wife gives birth? FMLA authorized. Need time off for chemo? FMLA authorized. Kid has a concussion during recess? FMLA authorized. There are some exceptions and restrictions, but generally speaking, that’s how it works.Even some elective medical procedures are considered okay for FMLA. For example, you couldn't get FMLA for a rhinoplasty procedure when the reason is “I just wanted to be cuter,” but you could have a breast reconstruction procedure following a mastectomy and that passes muster under FMLA and leave would be authorized.So. I told you all that to tell you this.An employee requested a month of FMLA leave for a medical procedure. It was an elective procedure, and as it turned out, it wasn't authorized under the Act. So wife’s employer declined.Ms. Employee went and had the procedure anyway and faxed in a letter from her doctor saying that FMLA leave was necessary because following the procedure, it was painful for her to walk and sit.What?Well, had she gotten the letter *before* the procedure, Employer would have made an exception per corporate policy (they did permit exception cases if the doctor involved provided a written request and explanation) — which she did, but after the fact. So Employer made an exception to the exception and authorized her normally-not-authorized FMLA leave.She returned to work and everyone figured it was dealt with. Well, that’s what my wife thought until Ms. Employee started showing before and after pictures to her coworkers.When my wife terminated her, she had to explain that showing before and after pictures of your freshly bleached anus is not acceptable workplace behavior.Oh, did I leave that part out at the beginning of the story?Epilogue: my wife had to explain, in detail, what anal bleaching was to her very prissy and religious VP, who didn't get what was going on. And she wanted to know how my wife knew what it was.Well, DUH. My wife didn't know what it was before the whole thing started, but she had to handle all the documentation, research the permissibility of the procedure and Google “anal bleaching” on her PC at work.My wife was not paid enough at that job.

Is it legal for my employer to force me to work when I'm sick and gave a valid doctor's note?

Yes, in America it is legal for employers to require you to work when sick, or punish you for not working when sick—even if you have a doctor's note.The only national sick leave law is called the Family and Medical Leave Act. It does guarantee that you can take up to 12 weeks off, unpaid, every year, without getting fired. But here's why you couldn't use that, even with your doctor's note.FMLA only applies to serious illnesses. This usually means something that will last more than 3 days. It can also refer to something which will regularly require you to take time off, such as very painful periods every month; it can also mean things that will require a doctor's continuing care, such as a cold with a bacterial infection which requires antibiotics.This means that FMLA cannot be used on illnesses which will not recur, or which will last less than 3 days (unless you must be hospitalized), or which will get better on their own. FMLA does not apply to most colds, or minor sprains, or even stomach flu.In fact, it is illegal for employers to take away from the 12 weeks guaranteed to you for serious illnesses on non-serious illnesses. That is, let’s say that you had a cold, and your employer wanted to be nice and give you 3 days off under FMLA. Then let’s say you got pregnant (this counts as serious). Your employer is not allowed to give you less than 12 weeks of FMLA leave just because you got a cold.Note, of course, that the 12-week limit is absolute. If you took 1 week of leave for pneumonia, then you have 11 weeks of FMLA leave left available that year for any other condition. So if you got pregnant after that, you’d be able to take only 11 weeks. Your employer is allowed to decide whether it wants to use a rolling year which starts when you first take FMLA leave, or a calendar year.Note also that since your employer is not allowed to take away from your bank for non-covered conditions, your employer is going to be very picky as to what it allows as FMLA. You can see it as being stingy (or being scared of getting in trouble with Uncle Sam)—but you can also see it as being generous, helping you save that 12 weeks for when you really need it.FMLA might not apply to you. Only companies which have more than 50 employees are required to provide FMLA leave. (Other states might have less; Maine requires all companies with more than 15 employees to offer it. But federally, it’s 50.) And it only applies to employees who have worked full-time for 1 year or more.Even if you do have a condition which would be covered under FMLA, and even if FMLA does apply to you, your employer is not required to recognize your doctor’s note. Your employer is not legally allowed to ask you more than what is listed on form WH-380, which is mostly just describing the illness and asking how much time they need (the form is here:, your employer is allowed to require you to use that form.Also, your employer doesn’t have to let you print out that form yourself and take it to the doctor; your employer is allowed to make you get a partially-filled-out copy from HR. (Once you tell HR that you want FMLA leave, your employer has 5 days to get you that form.) Then, your employer can require that you submit it within 15 days.What this means is that most companies do use that form, and they do not let you print it out yourself. And companies like this do not accept a regular doctor’s note.So put it all together, and there are a lot of reasons why your employer will not accept your doctor’s note. Your employer probably doesn’t have any sick leave other than FMLA (and yes, it’s legal to do this in most states). And your sickness probably doesn’t count as “serious” for FMLA. And even if it does, your employer doesn’t have to accept your doctor’s note.

How would you write a letter to the principal asking for 1 week of leave because of an accident?

The content of the letter you write is far less important than what the school policies are and whether your request could fall under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). You also don’t indicate if you just need the week off without repercussions (which FMLA covers for employees) or if you are asking for leave with pay. All of this hinges on what the policies are and whether or not your request falls within those policies. Research these and FMLA, and then write a simple letter indicating what you require. If the accident is medical in nature, you have a right to privacy and you do not have to disclose what the accident was.After that, the letter should be simple. For example:DateDear Mr./Ms. Principal Last Name,I had an accident which requires medical intervention, and I need one week of leave from work. My request is in compliance with employee/student policy (X) and/or falls under FMLA.Please grant me this request. (If you have one) I have provided a doctor’s excuse attached.Sincerely,Name

The Software PDF Creator undoubtedly remains at the forefront of the programs to edit PDF documents as it offers several tools that facilitate my work. Undoubtedly, the most useful function is that which allows you to click on files and drag them to the work area. That reduces the time to convert one or more files and as if by magic we created our PDF document. I recommend it openly for those who regularly work in this type of format.
