    I am looking for some advice regarding my crohns and how i am being treated by my employer

    In the past my work have told me that any absence i have due to my crohns will not count towards disciplinary procedures, this has been the case in my last 10 years of employment.  Today my store manager told me that procedures have changed and it will count towards my absence level which will lead to me being taken for disciplinary action, which could lead to my dismissal.

    Go to HR and ask to see that policy in writing. If it is standard policy, there may be nothing you can do that is easy.

    Find the highest level management you can, and explain your problem. Are you otherwise a good employee? If you are easily replaced you may be in trouble, but if you are sterling you can ask for an exception. It isn't as easy for companies to fire people for pre-existing conditions as it used to be.

    Crohns is no joke. My aunt has it, so I have seen the effects. I have a wheat sensitivity, so I avoid all wheat, in hopes of reducing my chance of getting it. Good luck!
