Q: I was written up for missing too much work after exercising my FMLA rights, eventually terminated. What are my options?
I was employed with a company for 16 months, having received 3 above average perforamnce evaluations and 2 promotions. I feel I was targeted for termination due to an incident earlier in the year where I had to go over my supervisor's head and report a sexual harassment complaint to the HR department. The things that followed led up to a written disciplinary report. I have never, in my 30+ years of employment, been written up, or disciplined for anything. The write up included other false statements that I was coerced into signing. I submitted a written rebuttal following week. I am awaiting a judge's decision on an appeal for unemployment benefits. However, I learned during the hearing that my professional reputation had also been assassinated. Is there anything I can do to rectify my reputation? Do I need to report the company for the discipline action filed because of my FLMA leave?
A: although i personally do not do employment law, we have an excellent person in the office that does. carla pyle - you are welcome to call her to ask. there are no fees for just a phone call. you can check her out on our website rubinoruman.com
