A: Each employment law matter is heavily dependent on facts. Many times those facts are supported by communication which includes emails, texts, and even recordings. The reasons expressed for your leave are critically important. What your employer knew or should have known about why you took leave is also very important.

Think medical issues here. Many times employees need medical leave, or their employers know they need leave for themselves or others close to them or even for immediate family members. This is just one example of leave which may or should have had more protection. Call some employment lawyers to discuss. It's all about the facts.
