Been on FMLA / short term disability for 3 months and doctor recommended 1.5 months extension. My firm refused the extended leave but we’re unable to provide reasons what the under hardship for the firm is.

So I took the day off for an emergency medical appointment. While at doctor’s office, I get bombarded by messages to send executive status updates. I said I have done most of the updates and other people will need to add their updates before it can be shared (I own sharing this to higher up).
