WENT FOR CANCER OPP - DID NOT GET PAID
I have been with a large company now for 4 months. It was discovered that I have cancer, and had to go for immediate surgery. I was not paid for the time I was off work. (3 weeks). Are they allowed to do that? This was not a opp that could wait. It was very serious. I did sign a contract, but nothing about a life threatening opperation was mentioned. Your help will be appreciated.
Thank you so much
