Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today.
Are you wanting to know if you can fire the employee while they are on FMLA?
She can work while on FMLA. It is possible to take FMLA on a part time basis though.
I would think the calls are considered work.
What exactly is your question on this?
Yes, if you instruct her not to do something then she can be terminated. However, I'd recommend that you consider getting a local lawyer to send the actual termination letter so that you're sure it is to the point and doesn't leave any room to be misinterpreted.
