Can I apply and interview for other jobs if I am on a leave of absence from work? Can I give a two week notice while on a LOA and will it affect my future reference with that employer?
State/Country relating to question: Michigan
Nothing yet, I am looking into this. My doctor wanted to put me on an LOA but I don't want negative effects with my employer, I also want to move from this current job to something less stressful.

I just googled my email address and it brings up everything I have ever written, responded to etc. I just interviewed for a job Friday and they will be googling my email address and my name. How can I be completey assured this will not be posted? It will destroy my chance at a new job.
Did the search bring up this thread?
not yet as I have not given a review. I still need two of the questions answered. That is also, can I give 2 week notice while on an LOA and How will future references from this employer be affected if I was on an LOA and gave 2 week notice? Thank you so much.
You may give the 2 weeks notice while you were on leave of absence.A future reference from the employer may state that you gave 2 weeks notice while on leave of absence.Typically this would not be viewed negatively because you are changing jobs for health reasons

Thank you so much for your time, have a great day!

I selected "excellent" but it's telling me to rate you 3 or higher, where do I go to do that?
Thank you very much for letting me know. I will take care of it. Best Regards
