    Does attendance affect you becoming a driver? Haven't worked in 3 month's but didn't file for disability due to the fact that I was injured outside of work. However my supervisor (main guy) told me to take as long as I want off. Please let me know . Thank you

    I'd get back to work asap, and the only thing that affects your chances of driving is seniority.

    I took a couple years off from an injury and came back to the same seniority position. But I do think there is a limit.

    Why didn't you apply for disability? I did and I was injured outside of work.

    Haven't gotten that desperate yet. They told him to stay out as long as needed. Only do that if they think you are awful

    After x amount of time, your seniority is broken, you should have signed up for disability, and that is what disability is for, off job injuries.

    How wonderful and caring the "main guy" is, no? I mean, letting you take all the time you need to get well, talk about heart!

    Forget driving, you have "management material" written all over you!

    That's not right ... there are many things that affect going driving ... there are many disqualifiers.

    If they don't like you, they'll make it as hard as possible for you, starting with the road test.

    Why in the world did you not apply for STD? What are you living on---your savings?

    Starting and ending with the road test, very subjective.

    There's a reason "main guy" doesn't mind you taking as much time as you need off.
