Leave donor program


Q: My supervisor pulled me from the leave donor program. I still have hours in there. I have brain cancer and still have appointments, treatments and surgery. He wants a note from my doctor saying he can ask questions about my cancer. Can he do that?

A: Cutting you off from the leave donor program doesn’t sound appropriate. You’ll need to talk to your HR contact about this. I checked with OPM and to their knowledge, a supervisor cannot inquire into an employee’s medical information without your explicit permission.
