I work in a grain mill with a unionized workforce. Our contract provides us with an S/A(sickness/accident) benefit that pays us a weekly benefit after the first full week of being off work. In the past we were not required to use FLMA leave while drawing this benefit for up to a six month preiod. Our contract also protects our job for a one year period of absence. Now we have a new HR person who is forcing us to use FLMA leave concurrently while on S/A leave. Is this legal?
Does this also apply in Nebraska? Also, our headquarters are in St. Louis if that makes a difference.
