Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Can you tell me a little about your situation? Also, it helps to know what state you're in, as there are some states that offer more protection than FMLA does.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I am in PA and work for a municipality. I am on medical leave and am job hunting. While I could not find a dedicated FMLA policy for the city, the sick leave policy states that people on sick leave are to stay at home.If I secure an interview can my employer retailiate? If I accept the new position can my previous employer contact the new employer and inform them I am was on medical leave when I applied? Should I tell the people I am interviewing that I (on leave and can't start until a certain date? What can my previous employer do regarding any future job prospects and what legally can they say?

Forgot to add that I am between a rock and a hard place and my job is trying to fire me.

Can you respond to my question?
Expert:  Lucy, Esq. replied 10 months ago.

I'm afraid I'm not allowed to respond until the payment issue has been resolved. Please contact customer service, and then I'm happy to help you.
