I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I discover an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you an answer..
Thanks guys but I'm actually smiling. You see, Karma is a bitch! About 2 hours after I left my co-teacher became very ill and will be out for a week (I'm not happy at all that she is sick mind you) and now there are NO TEACHERS for my classroom...
A request for "reasonable accommodations" is a federal law. The ADA requires that if you request "reasonable accommodations" to your workplace on a temporary basis, they are expected to work with you..
A letter from a disability attorney would stop this.That is why HR came back, they KNOW the law and so should you...good luck!..
No, it is not legal. You can file for FMLA and take up to 12 weeks unpaid.
Actually, if you qualify for FMLA, the company is required to offer it to you even if you dont ask for it..
If I were you, I'd file an appeal. Since they are such jerks, you probably don't actually want to work for them anymore, but what they did is just plain wrong!!.
Did they know about this beforehand? If so they were informed and had ample time to make accomodations for you. You could have been put in an older children's room where you wouldn't have to pick them up as much and you should have been told about this possibility before you took.
It works out for you. I am upset for you and I.
You are able to find a solution and maintain your health...
Good luc... dont sound legal to me, people have emrgencies all the time..
Imjj4short... not sure if the FMLA applys to contractors? But it is worth checking into..
Good luck Ms Mandy..
So sorry to hear about your day it just doesn't sound legal that all. Good luck..
Just remember that if you technically quit then they will deny you unemployment. So you may have to suck it up and work out the month and then tell them to go screw on your way out the door. It's a tough economy, you don't want to blow your chance to have that income while you look for another job..
Sounds like a bunch of BS to me too, I would definitely get a free consult with an attorney and see if you have a case and what you should do..
