I dunno if I agree with this…In late 2010 I suffered a very serious injury (outside of work) which required me to take what ended up being about four months off of work to heal and recover. It being my first long-term absence, I had no idea how it worked or what to expect. I found out that the situation was much better than I had originally envisioned, and I feel I was treated very fairly by my employer.

The only part that had me curious is that I was sent a letter stating that I was near the max hours that I could take for FMLA, and that I needed to return to work in order to keep my job. Didn’t bother me as I was ready (anxious is more like it) to return, anyway. The curiosity…the letter was sent to my office. How was I supposed to see it if I hadn’t already returned to work???
