It sounds like your boyfriend has in place intermittent FMLA leave, which allows him 3 days off per month.

Employers may not interfere with employees' rights under the FMLA, or retaliate against them for using FMLA time.

If your boyfriend is complying with all of the employers' policies around taking time off (such as calling off by a certain time, using a certain call-off number, etc.), and is not going over his 3 days per week, then the employer may not demote him.

If the employer demotes him, or takes other adverse actions against him because he is using FMLA time, he should consult with an attorney right away.

Hope that helps!
