Hello, My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. Please give me a few minutes to write a response and identify any additional resources for you.
I am sorry to learn of this situation - your employer is violating the FMLA standards for return to work.
Employees on FMLA leave are entitled to "immediate" return to work benefits when cleared for return by their physician.
If your employer continues to refuse to reinstate you (and does not compensate you for the time that they were in violation of the law (from when they were provided with your fitness to work letter by your physician)), you can report them to the Department of Labor and/or retain an employment law attorney to represent you.See: http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/reinstating-employee-after-fmla-leave.html
