This is a pt sup, so please leave now, if you do not wish to give your knowledge to help. He came in yesterday and said UPS is terminating him if he isnt back by Dec. I thought sick people had some kind of protection. He was diagnosed with cancer, has had many surgeries and his doctors said, June he could come back. He only got short term disability, so he is living on a wing and a prayer, already lost his home,ssi, denied his first claim waiting on his appeal. I thought fmla protected you a year, he said 12 weeks. what are his options after 17 yrs of employment, is he just sol?
