    There is a Family Medical Leave Act that you may qualify for. Go to this site and read the information about the FMLA and post any specific questions or details about your situation.
    Thanks!

      Well if you do not comply with the company policy regarding sick days or employment, then it is possible. The Family and Medical Leave Act means you should not be fired for time off due to your own or family illness, but you have to comply with the business' rules regarding family and medical leave under the Act also. Find out the procedure, then go about using it properly. If this is a chronic health issue with your child, you may need to think about home-based employment or making other arrangements for your child.
