I am about to lose my job what should I do?

At Amazon FC, they give us UPT (unpaid time off) 20-hours every 3 months and it stops at 80 hours.

PTO (Personal Time Off) -48 hours

Vac 3 hours every payday, I have 67 hours.

Right now it is Christmas and they locked out Vacation so we cannot take vacation anymore this year. I don't have any PTO left.

I am down with a fever and had to take 2 days off and am down to 24 hours of UPT, if that is expended I get fired.

What should I do? Urgent need help!

    Get a medical excuse ....go see your doctor.

    You are allowed to go to 0 and stay there. 

    So hope you don't need any more time than 24.01 hours before you get 20 more hours. 

    When is the new bucket of PTO added?  Probably January 1st.

    If you are off more than 3 days with this illness and it's a serious illness like a severe case of the flu, you can file for FMLA if you have worked for them for over 1 year.

    - if it's a standard sinus infection that won't work.

    Take 3 days off or less between now and when you get time again.
