Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about dock for being absence for sick child:
I have been at my new job for only a month. I am a paralegal in a criminal law firm. Last week my six-year old daughter was very ill. I had to pick her up from school (so I had to leave at 4 p.m. from work instead of 6 p.m.), and the next day I had to stay home with her. I am a divorced parent. My parents are deceased and I have no other family. My friends either work or stay home during the day with their small children; however, most of them work full-time.
