My Employer Promised to Hold My Job, but Gave it Away While I was on Leave
[su_row][su_column size=”1/2″] [su_column] My employer promised to hold my new job, but then gave it to someone else while I was away on FMLA. – Unfair, but not illegal. In order to qualify for FMLA protections, you have to have worked at the job for at least 12 months or have put in at least 1,250 hours of service.
[/su_column][su_column size=”1/2″][su_column]My employer says I can only take a couple of weeks off after the birth of my child. – Illegal. The FMLA stipulates that employers must give you at least 12 weeks off after a serious life/family event (major illness, birth/care of a child, adoption process, etc.) – without fear of job loss.
In 1993, Congress enacted the Family and Medical Leave Act, more commonly known as the FMLA. Under the FMLA, American workers at certain companies are allowed 12 full weeks of unpaid leave for circumstances such as the following:
- The birth of a newborn child
- The adoption of a child
- The care of an immediate family member who has a serious health condition
- An employee’s serious health condition
