I slipped in the shower and broke my ankle now I am not able to do my job. I went in to talk to them about taking a leave and they said that they couldnt offer me one and that they were sorry. They told me that they would give me a good refrence though.

This whole thing just sucks. I thought they would be okay with me taking a leave after working there for 5 years. I knew I wouldnt get paid for most of it or anything.

Ugh. Sorry if this make no sense I am just angry and venting.

ETA: I do overnight stocking at a grocery store. I cant walk around the store and stock with my crutches. I am one of two people who does it so they need to hire someone to replace me.

ETA2: Let me spell this out to you guys. This is perfectly legal for them to do. They can hire or fire me for any reason. They need to replace me and there is nothign I can do about it.

They dont offer FMLA because they cant afford it and because of the size it is legal.

Oh no!  Where do you work? What do you do?

Any chance they could at least hold your job until you are healed?

FMLA would protect you.  What they are trying to do is illegal.  (Assuming they have enough employees, that it.)

 You can't do light duty? Or take sick time?
