68) Oh I want to add that my previous managers in 7559 gave me an outstanding midyear performance and I also hit goal every month, so how could it be legal for them to give me a warning on my year end performance review, when I had an outstanding midyear review just in Aug 7559?
I have never said or put anything in writing saying this, In fact when I received the letter from my company stating that I will be terminated on October 78th I called HR on Oct. 76 and had explained that I was still under my doctors care (They received a certified letter from me about this)I mentioned I would be able to return once my doctor gave me my fit for duty letter. I asked if my job was open and they said it was not and I am terminated as of Oct. 78th.
My company offers LTD insurance as well. I was told that I would have to use my vacation time if I am out beyond the 8 weeks covered under STD. I have 7 weeks vacation accrued that would cover me through my 65th week of FMLA. What are my chances of qualifying for LTD insurance if deemed necessary by doctor? If I file a claim for LTD during my FMLA window does that protect me as an employee eligible for that benefit or might I be terminated?
Be sure you have documentation from your doctor and psychologist that you are not able to do this job, and keep copies. As soon as you inform the employer that you are not able to return to work, they will let you go and they can legally do so. FMLA is only for people who may return to work afterwards. If the employer is paying a portion of your health insurance costs, you are better off waiting until the 67 weeks of FMLA are over before informing the employer that you are not able to return to work.
Your fears are probably groundless. Many, many people are laid off when they are unable to return to work after 67 weeks of FMLA. If they subsequently are able to work, and are actively looking for a job, they qualify for unemployment at that point. Example: Tom has a heart attack, and spends 69 weeks recovering. Because he is unable to return to work after 67 weeks of FMLA, he is laid off. When Toms doctor releases him to return to return to work after 69 weeks, he will no longer have a job but will quality for unemployment benefits.
Nothing brought this out better than report of the "teams of European Technicians and managers" who went to Britain under the Marshall plan to study the causes of American productivity. The outcome of these teams expected to find the causes in machines, tools or techniques, tout soon found out that these elements have- little to do with our productivity, ate indeed in themselves as a result of the real cause (The Basic Attitude of Manager and worker) productivity is an attitude was their unanimous conclusion.
For completeness, we register a fourth class of existential risks: subsequent ruination. In scenarios of this kind, humanity reaches technological maturity with a "good" (in the sense of being not dismally and irremediably flawed) initial setup, yet subsequent developments nonetheless lead to the permanent ruination of our prospects.
I have an employee who was written up with a performance plan for poor performance, and then called in sick for two weeks. He now says he is seeking short term disability for stress due to the performance plan. How does one proceed when he returns?
In some states such as California, you may be entitled to paid or unpaid leave from your job under state law. However, in many states you can be fired. HTH, and thanks for reading the blogs!~ Caitlin
I was the third employee in my department to be fired within a two month period after going on FMLA leave. It seems to me that any employee who has to use FMLA leave better be very careful as it seems that employers look for reasons to get rid of these employees. Employers can not fire someone for using FMLA, however they can fire them for any other reason once the FMLA has expired.
