wallstreetfighter : Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification
wallstreetfighter : This is an unfortunate situation,
wallstreetfighter : under the federal laws, it is a violation of the FMLA regulations for an employer to intimidate or harass any employee who has applied for or requested FMLA leave.
wallstreetfighter : In terms of her treatment towards you,
wallstreetfighter : unless it is based upon your race, gender, age, religion or use of FMLA, the law does not protect employees from workplace bullying, wallstreetfighter : What you should consider is filling a DOL complaint for FMLA retaliation,
wallstreetfighter : by doing this you protect yourself from future harassment from the employer,
wallstreetfighter : and since FMLA is protected, an employer cannot in any way harass or intimidate any employee who has asked to use FMLA or is applying for FMLA.
wallstreetfighter : You would file a complaint with the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor.

<span class="JA_chatAuthorName"Customer: I live in a very small town, a "click" pretty much runs it and I'm so over the mentality of some of these people. I wasn't sure if I should try to make a complaint with my employer, due to further harassment or what to do!
wallstreetfighter : You can make a written complaint with your employer advising them of the FMLA retaliation you feel, and that if it does not stop you will have no other option but to file a DOL complaint,
wallstreetfighter : By doing this, you put the employer on notice that they need to stop the harassment,
wallstreetfighter : and that you know your legal rights.
wallstreetfighter : Typically under threat of potential legal action, an employer will try to stop the negative actions,
wallstreetfighter : You can also hire an attorney to send the letter as well.
Customer: I will do that! Thank you.. so much!
