I was terminated in the middle of my 12 weeks of FMLA. Now

Customer Question

I was terminated in the middle of my 12 weeks of FMLA. Now my FMLA period has ended but I am on disability with payment received by State of CA. My employer is not ending my employment which means I cannot access my severence package or my 401K for rollover. I have a letter from them stating that I am guaranteed my job back following my FMLA. So I have to concerns. Why could they terminate me and then not actually terminate me until my disability ends, which I don't know when that will end as it is up to my doctor. Something smells really foul here. Advice

I am sorry to hear about this situation. I am not sure what you mean by you being terminated, but, not really being terminated. Can you please clarify? How could they fire you but keep you employed?
