So I hold two positions for the same company. One job is to run an Internet Department and the second part of my job is to follow up with companies that have their fleet vehicles in for service.
My manager that oversee's my service follow up calls has said to my main boss that he will start outsourcing my service calls if I "keep slacking".
( A little background, the website that organizes the names and phone numbers of all of these clients has been under construction and down for about 4 weeks. So all of the calls that I was supposed to be making are now backed up and I have 4 weeks/2000 calls to catch up on. I cannot make these calls without the website to track the calls. Shortly after the site was back up I had to be placed on bedrest due to possible pre-e, hence the calls became even more backed up.
I told him that I was pregnant at 15 weeks, so well in advance, and that I would be taking 6 weeks maternity when the baby arrives. Now all of a sudden the length of maternity leave is a problem for him as well. I am supposed to be on bedrest right now but am at work because I'm afraid of losing this postition as it makes up half of my monthly income. )
So my question is. Can a company threaten to remove you from a position even if you have a doctor's note saying that you should be on bedrest? I could understand not being paid for the work I would be missing but to take away the position all together? I've checked on at least 10 different websites that have FMLA information but none have been able to answer this specific question. So any lawyer bumpies or anyone who would possibly know the answer please post! I'll be talking to my manager later today and would like to know all the rights I'm entitled to. I'll be doing more research before I talk to him but like I said not too many websites have been helpful. Thanks!
