Recent Maternity Leave questions
I've been with my company years as a salaried employee in a
I've been with my company for 5 years as a salaried employee in a senior level position. My husband was recently promoted to a position out of state. I'd like to keep my job working remotely, also I'm pregnant. I haven't told my employer either of those things yet. Do I tell my employer I'm pregrant first? Then tell them about the move and my request to work remotely? Or reverse? Or neither? I'd really like to maintain my job especially to keep my maternity benefits. Also my job is completely able to be remote and I work from home 1 day a week currently.
Im currently employed full-time as an admin assistant. Been
Hi Im currently employed full-time as an admin assistant. Been with the practice for 5 years now. I'm also 33 weeks pregnant. My doctor requested for me to be on maternity leave by July 18th. Last day at work would be July 15th. Due to the severity of low back pain. Now, my manager told me that they will only cover the 6 weeks for me. That my job wont be guaranteed. I spoke to Human Resource and they told me that the reason why they would only cover 6 weeks because they don't abide by the family leave act since they are under 50 employees. So they don't have to hold my position. They will basically hold it for those amount of weeks. So at this point not sure if I should leave by July 15th or continue to work until a few days prior my due date which is August 19th.
I work as a 2nd shift supervisor major medical company in
Hi, I work as a 2nd shift supervisor for a major medical company in Florida. Recently, I've been placed on a 90 day - Performance Improvement Plan for missing my project dates. The PIP new due dates for the projects are unrealistic and unachievable. Knowing the company is downsizing I feel it's a ploy. Plus, the projects I'm assigned doesn't fall under my job description but under a manufacturing engineer II. I'm 1 of 3 supervisors (2 on dayshift) and the only one that was not assigned a laptop to work from home. The other supervisors have two leads each. I have one that's been on maternity leave for close to 5 months. Working 2nd shift clearly has limited hours of resources. That, along with not having a laptop and assigned leads. Puts me at a disadvantage. Do I have a leg to stand on in regards ***** ***** my job?

I was working company 1,5 year. After I told the employer
Hi there, I was working for the company 1,5 year. After I told the employer that I'm pregnant, she told me my rights. They paid me 6 weeks after birth, and after 10 weeks, I contacted employer to report my back to work, and been told that they can not offer me a job anymore. They hired the other girl, and put her on my place. I was paid on 10-99, because that was my choice. Do I have any rights here, can I do anything. Thank you
I just returned to work from maternity leave 3 days go, and
I just returned to work from maternity leave 3 days go, and was told that due to personnel error the money I was getting during my maternity leave was not my short disability, but payroll checks.They are now telling me that they will be withholding my pay for 12 weeks to compensate for the error. Can they do that? I will be homeless if they do that.
I am currently pregnant and am only being allowed to take 6
I am currently pregnant and am only being allowed to take 6 weeks off for maternity leave with my small company. That is not something that will work for me and my family. I would like to give my employer ample notice that I will be leaving the company when my child is born. However, I do have concern that when I inform my employer, it may not go well and they will consider that me quiting and will have it take effect immediately. I would like to know the best way to word my intentions so that if the above situation happens and I lose my job, that I will be able to apply for unemployment. Thank you
I am57 years old working health system in leadership
I am57 years old working for large health system in leadership position (director)for 20 years. Always been a strong, I procompany, loyal and dedicated committed employee. 14 years in this role.A new younger AVP was assigned to "help" me get projects done since we were quite lean. I have been leading this large I was having health problems and investigTing cause. She left for 3 month maternity leave. Returned in a more adversarial capacity with meetings every week and an "action plan for my goals" (which I created) with tight deadlines. Could not complete them timely and told her it was not working for me. She was relentless. Felt like every day I would lose my job. 2 1/2 months later I wound up in er with exacerbation of my symptoms and although I returned next am, had a meltdown" and had to leave on a fMLA approved while receiving. Multiple forms of treatment and definitive diagnosis. Out for 3 months FMLA protectedbut received full pay as executive. Dr's all concurred my disease (autoimmune peripheral demyelination disease w fibromyalgia)was exacerbated by stress and I had documented cognitive and memory impairment which contributes to my inability to do as well as I had in past.Been back8 weeks and harassment has continued to point of her yelling at me that I was not doing good (which I disagree w her assessment). I asked my boss if he was dissatisfied with my work and he said no. He stated she "doesn't like me and to make her happy". He also said "she is not a.nice person".My Drs have now recommended a course of therapy with unknown reaction and me going out again. I requested a mtg w HR to tell them would hate to go out again and let my team down and I needed to refocus on my health again since my symptoms are worse since I'm back. Asked for early retirement package or severance . No. Nothing being offered again as an early retiree.( I don't need the health benefits)Two days later, VP and AVP requested meeting to discuss my performance. VP did all the talking which essentially concurred that they know I wasn't well but was not performing to their expectations and I was being let go without any other positions in system. Offered 4 week severance. Would allow the "message" to my staff to be however I want.Given till Monday to make decision and three weeks to "tie things up ". I am appalled at 4 week severance after 20 years. Could go on disability and get full pay for six months! Already filed a claim effective day before meeting. I asked about transfer and they said to contact HR. I am relieved my nightmare is over but feel slapped by this insignificant package. Suggestions, do I have any legal remedy? I requested a quick mtg w CEO that has not responded yet.
We hired someone who did not disclose they were pregnant andView more employment law questions
We hired someone who did not disclose they were pregnant and we did not notice. After a few weeks we did notice and asked and she said she thought we knew and told us she was 4 months pregnant. She texted one day and said she had to have an emergency C section which would have been at about her 6 month mark. We are pretty certain she lied about how pregnant she was and the C section was not an emergency but on schedule. We feel deceived she did not tell us when we hired her and also because she did not allow us to plan for her being gone. I would like to let her go. what are my options?
