  • fmla question Massachusetts

    If an employer approves an employees fmla leave can they turn around two months later and terminate that employee for that absence?

    No, not JUST for taking FMLA.
    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

        I just stand by my statement that FMLA is protected leave & you cannot be terminated JUST for taking approved FMLA.

          Once FMLA has been approved it cannot be unapproved.

          How long was the original approval for? Did you exceed it?
          The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
