I have been out on FMLA
w ill hubby, resulting in applying for short term disability
in WY. Just 3 days ago I needed something from my office. I called a colleague and left a voice message, called a second employee no answer, then texted (our colleague's usual way of communicating). I texted the program director and the 2 colleagurs above. Finally, a close friend and colleague told me via textI that said " I cannot contact you, we have been threatened to lose our jobs if they talk to me while on FMLA". Mind you, this last text was on a Sunday, a non work day. Another staff told me the phones were down. I have reported the hostile
toxic work environment prior to taking leave of absence FMLA. ( Its a publicly traded corporation so I do know there are restrictions about discussing finances, number of clients, anything that pertains to public trading or SEC information.
PS the lady who told me she cant contacct me has also reported bullying
by this lady, and I took my bullying issue to HR, and the program directors boss, different from my boss as I am under a different section, quality assurance.
