I am an employee at will and have been employed as the Vice President of this Real Estate Management Company for 35 years. They never sent me an FMLA letter but I do qualify. I have no health benefits with the CO. My original boss was the father but the sons are in charge now.
I will be out for a total of 16 weeks so the FLMA will not apply anyway. Any advice as to how to handel the return to work conversation? My relationship with 2 of the 3 sons is good but I am highly compensated and they would like to put my salary in their pocket, as they have been unsuccessful at growing the business on their own. I started the business with their father in 1977. I have knowledge that they now is valuable to them but not as valuable as my compensation. They will try to cut the number of days that I work whioe still having access to my knowledge 24 / 7.
Probably not - but good thinking. My biggest card is that I know what they have been taking off the top of the investors return in superfluous fees and charges. I think I need an all or nothing response - I work or I don't - no accessibility without returning to my former position.
Did I miss an answer?
What is the answer to the question, If I have an employment agreement do I sacrifice any of my protection as an employee under the law?
I think I left something out. I am working from home full time and receiving full pay. Can't I ask for FMLA if I decide not to work from home and be paid but take the next 12 weeks to work on healing and getting back to walking and driving?
What is the window - thanks for all your help
Does that mean working at all or working from the office?
