  • FMLA/discrimination question Utah Utah

    At the company i work for there is a union contract that forces the company to allow those that take FMLA for a family member's disability to choose whether to use there vacation time or to take it non paid. for those of us that are disabled and take FMLA for our own disability and not a family members are not covered in this contract so the company forces us to take our vacation time.

    because they treat people with the disability differently then those that don’t have it but are taking FMLA for a family members disability's does this constitute discrimination? even though they do it because of the union contract? The contract does not state anything about people taking FMLA for there own disability’s and the state is a right to work state

    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.
