Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
How many employees does your company have, and how long were you employed there when you fell ill? I very much look forward to helping you on this matter.
Thank you. Unfortunately, with so few employees, none of the laws prohibiting disability disability or providing protected job leave would typically apply to your employment. This means that, while unfair to reduce your hours, it would not be illegal for them to do so under the circumstances. I truly wish I could tell you otherwise, but your best recourse may be to find another job if you cannot convince your employer to increase your hours or pay. I am very sorry.
If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
