  1. I have just been given a verbal warning by my supervisor for taking too many days off due to frequent chronic migraines. The form I signed stated that I never provided written proof (something from doctor/ER). Well, I was never asked to turn one in. I have used my PTO for these days off and our company has a pool of therapist to cover when one of us calls off. Are they allowed to do this? I feel next step is written warning and then termination. They want to know of accommodations that may need to made for me, which I appreciate. But I do t think they have the right to reprimand me. I have been upfront with my supervisor throughout.
