Q: I work for amazon i started as a fulltime white badge and got converted to blue badge they changed my hire date
I started 11/2019 and got converted 06/2020 i was always a full time employee with no breaks. They changed my hire date to the day i was converted and will not change it back to the actual day i was hired. This has affected many things looking at a new apartment after my divorce when they asked for time at current job i put my hire date in november amazon told them june so it looked like i wasnt employed for 6 months covid saved me on that cause they were hard up for residents. Last month i financed a new car i had the same issue with hire date this time being able to show paycheck stubbs saved me. But now i caught covid in there warehouse and have been out for over a month they paid me two weeks but the doctor extended my leave a week because i was still showing symptoms they sent me a letter stating i don’t qualify for federal Family and Medical Leave Act because i havent worked enough hours but again they are going off june hire date. I was hired by Amazon directly november 2019
A: Were you employed with a staffing agency and placed at Amazon prior to June 2020? If so, then you were likely not an employee of Amazon until June 2020. The date you became an employee of Amazon (not the date you were placed to work in Amazon's facility) would be the relevant date for determining whether you are eligible for taking FMLA leave. You should contact an attorney in your area to discuss your situation in more detail.
