This blog post brings to light an employee who was terminated after returning from his FMLA one month leave. This employee did not complete the full month of leave he was granted and returned to work early, and was soon terminated. Employees who are granted approved medical leave should be able to take that time without the worry of their job being there when they return- they should not need to worry about receiving the required paperwork or having to “plan” their medical leave in order to keep their job.
