I hate this company- Eye Care Centers of America, Visionary Works, HOur Eyes, etc...this franchised company is the most corrupt and unreliable company I have ever been with. I got fired because I have a pinched nerve and even though I told one of the managers but because the manager is not on salary it doesn't count, therefore they categorized me as job abandonment....SUCH BS!!! :mad3: :pissed: :2far:

if you are trying to collect unemployment and are being denied due to you having been categorized as "job abandonment", you should be able to get a hearing with an administrative judge at the unemployment agency (these are non-court hearings) to present evidence showing that you were wrongfully dismissed.
it also goes without saying that you may have a case for wrongful termination lawsuit. talk to a labor attorney.

It seems they are violating the Family and Medical Leave Act which is also in their employee handbook. I don't think their in-house corporate policies overrides such Federal regulations. I hope it's big fine.
Definitely meet with a lawyer. If you can provide your medical bills/visit documents and the doctor's orders for you to stay home, then this could be wrongful termination.
