I live in new york and I work for the biggest environmental job agency. I have a serious illness so i used my fmla. Without notice they not only lowp me but they awoled me as well. Can they do that within the guidelines of my FMLA & the ada?

I was retaliated once before for using my fmla and my employer got deployed for it and now that I used my FMLA because my employer told me to use it and not only did they lwop me but they awoled as well.

I don't know what the biggest environmental job agency is. If you work for the federal government call felicia nestor, esq. who represents federal employees. Otherwise call employment lawyers to discuss.

An employer can use legitimate nondiscriminatory reasons to take adverse actions against employees. No federal law protects an employee if the employer has such a reason unless:

You are a government employee. In that case you do have additional protection. Additional rules and regulations apply. Your situation becomes much more complicated; especially if you are also covered by a union contract. Call lawyers now to discuss.
