My district manager stated he approved time off. Never advised me if it was FMLA but when my unemployment was approve they stated my employer never mentioned they approved a leave of absence they just stated I was on sick leave.
I understand the "at will" situation but by New Mexico law I properly called in prior to my shift. I gave 6 hours in advance and I was a General Manager for this company I spoke to my district manager the morning of April 1st and he said my call in was accepted then no later than 3 pm the owner sent me a email stating I was termintated for an un approved return from leave of absence which was miss communicated to the owner.
