Best Answer

You will be replaced, as the job still needs to be done. You should keep the employer advised as to your health and treatment that you are getting from your Doctor, and especially "When you will be coming back to work". An employer will appreciate being informed, instead of wondering "whats up with you".

The legal requirements vary from place to place, but a good worker will be less likely to be dropped than a bad one.

According to the US Family Medical Leave Act, you can take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave in a 12-month period for a documented serious illness. Your employer has to give you a job when you come back. BUT they only have to give you A job when you return, it doesn't have to be the same job. It could have different duties and a lower pay scale. (This is the same law that applies to new and adoptive parents) Smaller companies are exempt from this act.

ABSOLUTELY. I just went threw this with my employer. It is Federal Law and they HAVE TO keep your job for you.USERRA fed law says the employer must allow you to go. It need not keep your job open, but must return you to your job - firing your replacement - if you return within five years. Keeping your job unfilled for years would lower productivity, and no law requires that.

Can you sue your employer for not giving you your job back after returning from disabilty leave?

That depends on what "disability leave" you took. If the employer granted you FMLA leave, then you must be restored to your old job (or a job EXACTLY like it) even if the employer must fire some one to create the vacancy. If you were just off sick or injured, you have no right to your job back, unless found in a union contract. Employers own the jobs and hand them out as they wish - the job is not "yours", but theirs.

Can an employer advertise part of your job without informing you or discussing it with you?

Certainly. The employer OWNS the job - you don't. The employer can change it as he/she sees fit, or cancel it, or give it to another. You have no right to "your job".


If you already have a job and your new employer asks on the application when you can start what do you say?

Being strictly honest, you would have to say the date after you have worked out your notice in your old job. However, once your previous employer knows you want to leave, i.e. once you have given notice to leave, he probably will not want to hold you up unless you have a very vital job - an employee about to leave is by definition not happy, thus not someone an employer might want to hold onto until the last minute. Be careful what you say!
