Totally discouraged!

I was at a job that I was doing pretty well at up until the point where I caught the flu and was hospitalized due to complications from the flu. I was told that I could not lose my job for being sick. Upon my arrival back to work, they had put my FMLA papers through but by this time I had no more sick time or personal time left to take off because I was hospitalized for a month. I still haven't fully recovered, so I did what I felt was the right…

Jobeless is it illegal??

Soo I have been employed by the same company since October of 2018... I never missed a day of work or was late. I ALWAYS went above and beyond. I told the gm I needed time of in June (this was November) she ended up quitting/getting fired not sure which, anyway I remind the owner about a month ago at our weekly meetings that I needed the time off he helped me to have someone fill as far as I knew everything was fine.

I had FMLA in place at my last job. Should I wait to be hired to bring this up, or should I state this in interviews? I feel withholding this information is somehow wrong! My last Job everyone had 30-minutes for lunch. My lunch had to be an hour sometimes a little longer, this also covered occasional appointments.

Thank You

Wrongful Termination

Hi. I worked for a Glass company in Motaine Ohio. I was on approved FMLA. The day I was to return to work. I was terminated. Now I had never had any verbal written or any type of disclinary action. It took me by surprise that this happened. When I called to find out why they would not return my calls. It put me in a deep depression. I haven’t been able to find a job since October. I’m on unemployment but that barely covers bills…

Fired unjustly....i find a Lawyer.

Discrimination termination

Does anyone know if there is a time period you have to be able to file a case for wrongful termination? I have a chronic illness and was covered under FMLA and was still fired from my previous job. I have wanted to contact a lawyer but they traumatized me so bad with the way they fired me that I have not had the courage to do so. Any Thoughts are appreciated. Thank you.

Get some balls, get a lawyer

Can my friend be fired?

Wrongfull termination

I was on disability and they terminated me. I was never notified by human resources my co worker called me and i was also on fmla. I filed complaints against my lead for harrassment. I requested a copy of my personal file. While on disability they requested a confetence call with two managers and a lawyer.

You need to get a good lawyer because you have a discrimination case based on your disability and violation of fmla laws.
