    Has your leave been qualified as FMLA? And how long have you been out? If FMLA leave, your job is only legally protected for 12 weeks in a one year period (rolling year, fixed year, or anniversary year). If not, there is no legal job protection. I don't necessarily agree with their premise, but short of the absences be covered under FMLA, they can legally let you go at any time, no matter what reason they give you.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
