Issues with Dr. Appt. interferring with work.

Ok, In my eyes my health is more important than my job at this point. So I told my supervisor that i had to be out on Friday for medical reasons. I work at a church and he's telling me i cant be out because there is going to be a funeral here. On days when there are funerals here at the church i dont do anything but sit there and answer the phones as usual. He will not be here on Friday and i feel like its not my problem.

Basically im saying there is a funeral at my job and i feel like i am more important to me. And yes i am saying i dont care, because if my doctor ordered me to do it Friday then thats what i'll do. I was thinking about waiting to the day of and calling out but that would be rude so instead i told him ahead of time and he showed no concern ( as always) and just said no you have to be here. So im planning on getting a note from my doctor saying i have to do this. If something was to go wrong with me or the baby it would be on me not them and i guarantee when they go home at night i will not be on thier mind. So friday this job will not be on my mind.

Am i wrong to do this?

Does anyone in here have problems with getting off of work for prenatal or other pregnancy related appointments?

Check out your local labor laws. I know for most jobs in Il as long as you provide a doctor's note you cannot be disiplined for missing a day as long as you provided adequete notice. Good luck!

i say screw your boss your baby is more important. you would think someone who works at a church would be a little more worried about you and your baby then a phone being answered. yeah it would suck to lose your job but it would be a million times worse if something happened to the baby
