Saint Paul, MN asked in Employment Discrimination and Employment Law for Minnesota

Q: I was told by my supervisor that if I have too many FMLA days they will take away the 1 day a week I can work from home

My entire team works from home on Fridays and I was told I would be expected to be in the office if I have too many unplanned FMLA days.

I am on intermittent FMLA for my own serious health condition.

I feel I am being punished for having FMLA

A: In general, an employer cannot use your need to take intermittent FMLA as a negative factor in making an employment decision. More details are needed to determine whether an FMLA violation has occurred. You should consult with an employment attorney as soon as possible to determine the best course of action.
