You are very welcome, Louie! Check back often— we are constantly posting new info! She is drawing short term disability and has to have a second surgery because the screws backed out and the metal plate is falling and the hospital terminated her employment at end of FMLA stating she voluntarily did not return to work after leave of absence.
Caitlin February 10th, at 7: Yes, this is legal. When an employee is injured on the job, the employer must pay the medical expenses, and they receive some income from workers comp.
However, that does not protect the employees job. When you sister recovers, she can collect unemployment benefits because she was terminated through no fault of her own. She should save the medical receipts. Sometimes an employee who is on workers comp is entitled to a settlement.
If your sister is offered a settlement, she should not sign anything without consulting an attorney. HTH, and thanks for reading the blogs! She had a very poor record of absence prior to the surgery and would have been let go had she not notified us of her intent to go on disability.
Her doctor sent a form giving her 1 month on disability due to the surgery. Can she be terminated.
We have employees. Caitlin April 13th, at Assuming you are not in California, and the employee has exhausted any FMLA or state family leave, and not returned when she was supposed to, you can terminate her in accordance with company attendance policies.
You should notify her by certified letter that if she does not return to work by a certain date, she will be terminated. Give her contact information in the letter to call with questions. In some cases, if the employee now has a permanent disability, she is entitled to additional unpaid leave under ADA.
However, she is still required to remain in touch with the employer. What is the best way to handle this and ensure that I receive my short term disability benefits? Are there any laws preventing my employer to terminating me if I give them 30 days notice of my departure as requested by the company?
Caitlin April 19th, at 6: It is probably in your best interest to return to work, at least for a while. When an employee does not return from FMLA or short term disability, she can be required to repay any benefits from the employer, including the employers portion of the health insurance premium plus any disability payments.
If you return and give 30 days notice, the employer can legally terminate you at that point. However, you would no longer be required to repay benefits. You would also be entitled to collect unemployment, at least for the remainder of the 30 days.
Do I have the right to terminate her employment without paying any penalty? Caitlin August 18th, at No, you do not necessarily have that right. First, you do not say if your company is covered by the federal FLSA or not — and it makes a big difference.
If you are covered by the FLSA, post a question that gives more details of your situation.
Second, you really need to contact this employee and find out more about the situation. If she has a permanent disability, she may be entitled to unpaid tme off as an accommodation.
You do not say how long this employee has been off or what type of leave she is on — and that is all important.Here's a full essay that I wrote with my students for the question below.
