A: You need to provide some facts before anyone can help you. For example, how were you forced to take an unpaid medical leave? Does your employer qualify for FMLA? If you "took a leave" without the leave being approved, how is that different from abandoning your job? You have been "trying" to return to work but what have you been "doing" in your effort to return to work? "Runaround" is a conclusion, not a fact. Who is giving you the "runaround" and what are they telling you? You don't need to state anything that identifies you, individually, but you do need to provide some basic facts. Please repost with that information and I'll try to make a meaningful response.

A: If you repost, you may want to include the Employment Law category as well, since your matter also involves that area of practice - it could make for better chances of responses. Good luck
