What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? California
Last week, I wasn't feeling good at work. I told the manager on duty that I was not feeling good. I her to let me go home but she declined. After about an hour and a half, my co-workers were telling me that I didn't look good. After asking her a third time to let me go home she once again declined. A few minutes later I passed out and was taken to the emergency room. Now I have a 9,000 USD hospital bill. Should my employer be held responsible? I am a waitress and work for a large restaurant chain.
