Although I wasn't aware of the "Employees Handbook" when I was hired nor was I made aware it existed. In one section, it says " A MLOA can not be granted for a period longer than 8 contiguous months during any 12 month period. I'm not sure if that means termination or layoff. The document says under "Termination while on leave or failure to return" section, that&nbs... employee may be terminated from employment for employees on MLOA, FMLA or PLOA for any of the following reasons.
- employee does not return at the end of the approved leave! (I'm on disability and I've been told I am going to lose not only my job but my benefits as well)
-If an employee is "LAID OFF" while on an approved MLOA, the employee will be eligible for benefits under the severance plan.
I can't find anything in the document under severance.
Anything I can do?
