Before i was hired almost 3 years ago, i told my boss that i had a son with health issues and there would be times that i would have to miss. My parents both died 10 years ago and i am the sole caregiver to my teenage children. As his health got worse so did mine. In November of last year my boss and i had a talk about my attendance and he told me that i need to do better. So i started doing my best to schedule doctors appointments ahead of time and let everyone know. I was also told when i was hired that they did not need doctors excuses and everytime i would bring them one anyway they would throw them away. I just need to know if you think that i even have a chance with this appeal.
