  • fired today Michigan

    I have worked for this company for almost 18 years. three weeks ago I passed out at work and was taken to the E.R by ambulance. days later still having fainting problems, went to the Doctor, he ordered tests and is sending me to a couple specialists, The Doctor also told me no driving or working until this is figured out....
    I talked to my employer and we both agreed he would get STD started for me. Two days later I was fired. My husband works at same place. they told him that I was fired and to clean out my desk. as of this moment I have not been notified by them that I was fired.... This Company has a little over 50 employees, Main problem was it was cutting into the higher up's golf time cause they had to cover my work...

    Do you qualify for FMLA (12 weeks of unpd. *job protected* leave for a serious health condition within every 12 mo. period)? (seems your health condition applies)
    1)Have you worked for your employer for at least 12 mos. (do not have to be consecutive)-seems you have (that's ok)
    2)Do you work at a location with 50 or more employees within a 75-mile radius - seems so if the 50+ employees you noted all work where you do or within a 50 mi. radius (then that would be ok)
    3) Have you worked at least 1,250 hours for your employer in the 12 mos. immediately preceding the leave? (need answer)

    Thanks. (If you get STD that would pay you while you are on FMLA but it doesn't protect your job.)
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

      The timing is tricky with the STD, but assuming it is approved, it would also almost certainly continue to pay even though you are no longer employed at the company.
      I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
