CSX Attendance Policy

NO!!! You CAN'T have a day off!

    The railroad practically invented the term 'on-call'. Many CSX employees do not have schedules, but are forced into working a 'list'. Most lists are on call 6 days a week, 24 hours a day, and often the employee cannot even choose their day off. It is common to be called to work during an assigned day off.

    Unscheduled days off are usually not granted for family or religious obligations. There are many CSX employees who have been unable to attend their childrens' birthday parties, their wedding anniversaries, and even funerals because they were not allowed time off.

    We've even heard of people who had to call out sick, to attend their own wedding! We're sure that some of these stories that can top even that one...

As a note, according to Federal Law, (not the CSX Kangaroo court)
Individual employees can also be held accountable for harassing or
disciplining employees for using FMLA according to there Dr. approved
leave. With this being said, make sure the Attorney also goes after not
only CSX, but all employees involved in the investigation process.
i.e... the manager of FMLA who makes the decision to charge said
employee and the CSX Manager who signs the charge letter.

The worst I have seen the FMLA abused was by a salary paid manager who
didn't even lose a single penny. This company has shafted so many
people that have put in their time here by working every weekend, every
shift, every holiday just to be either laid off or back to the very
bottom man back to paying "his dues". You also get points for an
excused Drs. Note even though we get no paid sick time. Why would
someone not try to get FMLA to not get shafted by this company even
more. We were also informed this week that there is no mark off for
extreme weather conditions. How can they even get away with
jeopardizing employees lives because for a single parent meaning they
would also have to get there kids out to take them to the babysitter.
This company has progressively gone down hill and only seems to be
getting worse. This company doesn't care about me or mine. Why should
I care about doing anything for them except the very bare minimum. Just
my 2 cents for what it is. I do not have nor have I ever had FMLA but I
get it. People get tired of dedicating their life to this company that
just knocks them to the same place they started if your lucky to still
have a job.

Thank you for the information regarding the waiver, just as I
suspected.

I also agree to NOT sign the waiver. Doing so is almost certain
termination if one was to ever be investigated for FMLA abuse again. It
also takes away all ability to sue, because you'd be admitting you did
abuse your leave.

I'm on my third twelve month period of FMLA intermittent leave, and I
have NEVER received any "warning letters" concerning my actual use of
FMLA leave. I know of those who have, though.

CSX also requested me to re certify my FMLA leave due to an increase in
the usage estimated by my health care provider. Not only did I complete
the re certification paperwork(which has already been approved by the
FMLA department), I had my health care provider write a letter stating
my leave during the time period of the charge letter was in fact for my
personal serious condition. Still no word from the company.

As for the "honest belief" claim in defense of a retaliation lawsuit,
it's really hit or miss, when you search online for the outcome. In a
nutshell, the defense is that the company had an honest belief of FMLA
abuse, and even if they are wrong, they can't be held liable in a
retaliation lawsuit. BUT, everything you read online shows examples of
where the company had some sort of actaul proof the leave was being
misused. In our case, the only proof the company has is that leave was
taken. Not that it was taken for other reasons, just taken period.
During a certain time frame. I don't think it works that way. Neither
does my lawyer.

Best of luck to all involved. Please keep others in the loop as to
what's happening. 

My lawyer is aware of all this. He has advised me on how to proceed if
the investigation is completed. I have plenty of money to wait this
out, even if it takes years. I will admit to nothing.

offered 30 day actual suspension.  With time served going against it.  
They wanted me to admit I abused my leave.  I did no such thing.  I've
proof on to top of my certification.   So I told them there was no way
I'd be signing a waiver.   There were others also I dont know if any
took their waiver.

Also we had several in the last year who received "warning letters"
stating they were using their leave not for its intentions. 
conclusion they are holding all who didnt receive said letter at a
different standard.  Be sure to tell your lawyer about these warning
letters that werent received.

They are trying to build their case on an Honest Suspicion.  Which if 
they can it's near impossible to bring charges against them.  Non
union places of employment can fire let go their employees for almost
any reason.  The union shields us of this. So the honest suspicion rule
is all they have.  
Only use your leave for it's intentions. Never post on social media.
never talk to co-workers about your leave.  Never forecast leave. 
dont do anything that could be videotaped an used against you. Your co
workers will hang you if given a chance.

To whomever that was offered a waiver, would you care to elaborate on
the specifics of said waiver?

My investigation was over a week and a half ago, which was postponed
after I submitted documentation from my health care provider regarding
my FMLA use during the time period covered in the charge letter. My
postponement date is still over a week away, and no word from the
company concerning the documentation I provided.

Thanks in advance.

Flood them today. Don't wait to see what happens.  It's been two
weeks.   CSX and your Union doesn't care that you were wrongfully
accused. 
They don't care that your living on unemployment.     The complaint is
anonymous and even if it wasn't they would not come after you. 
That would be their great downfall.

Yo - a few things.. I know .. 1) no one on here sent my posts to Human
Resources especially the one with my investigation time and date and
not by the people I called gay or wives with swinging dick 2) and I am
