Asked in Employment Law for Idaho

Q: I work for federal. I am vital. I have waited a very long time to get upcoming surgery that will need my existing sick

Leave pay. I have covid symptoms. People in my office have tested positive. I am scared I have it also but wonder if I have to use my intended sick leave for covid 19 quarantine . I really NEED the surgery .. and that is what is keeping me from testing for positive/negative test. Is there a federal law they would use other federal grant monies for covid19 pay?

A: More information is needed to answer this question. Are you stating that you work for the federal government? If so, I would contact a lawyer that represents federal employees to go over your situation in greater detail. Many offer free consultations. Best of luck.
