I sustained an on the job injury and was on workman's comp for 2 1/2 months. I maintained contact with my center for the duration of the time I was out. The week before I returned to work, I received a happy little certified letter from my center accusing me of being AWOL for a month and informing me that I had 3 days to report to work or I would lose my seniority. Naturally, I was livid and confronted my center manager about it. He said that the date stated in the letter as the date I was supposed to be back at work came from my last Doctor's note. The problem is that wasn't true. I had the note with me to prove it, so I handed it to him and asked again why he had sent me a letter accusing me of being AWOL since a specific date that was not on the doctor's note. He said he guessed it must be a mistake and tried to blow it off. I wasn't satisfied with that explanation so I asked him how a mistake like that could be made. I asked him specifically where the date that he "mistakenly" thought I was supposed to be back at work came from since it obviously did NOT come from the doctor's note, and a specific date had to come from somewhere. There was an awkward silence followed by some mumbling and then the "reassurance" that I didn't have to worry about that letter... Something shady seems to be going on here. Were they trying to get rid of me? Were they trying to cook the books in some way? There is no way this was an honest mistake... Thoughts?
