My workers compensation claim was made in the State of:
My ER just informed me that I now have only 2 weeks left of FMLA time! Huh? They voluntarily offer 26 weeks of FMLA to workers, not just the minimum 12 weeks. Nowhere does it state anywhere in their policy booklet that this 26 weeks FMLA deal is "for life of employment"! I've been on and off FMLA for over 6 years and have used much more than 26 weeks so far. Was I wrong in assuming my 26 weeks FMLA simply rolled over each year? I certainly did not use 23 weeks of FMLA in the past year either. How can they change a federally mandated policy except to voluntarily expand it? Can they change the yearly roll over just like that?
If this is the true, women are only allowed to have one child to take 6 mos. to care for a newborn during their entire employment --- yet they have! Why me? Bec. of WC status? They are not giving me any answers. I tried calling the ER FMLA coordinator and she refused to speak with me. I also called the head of HR and she's refusing to speak with me also!
