medical leave for assault/harrassment at work
In California, I was severely harrassed and verbally assaulted in a private meeting at work. Told to shut up, and stay put, not able to defend myself in any way. I was harrassed so severely that I went directly home and got sick all night.

I now am having panic attacks while I'm at work, and have gone to see a Dr. for a prescription for anti-anxiety meds. The doctor offered to give me a note to allow for me to take some time off work to recover.

I want to take the note from the doctor, but am afraid that my employer will deduct this time off from my vacation pay. Does worker's comp cover this time off since it is an emotional injury that occured at work?
