Example: A man tries to take a leave from work for his mother’s funeral. The boss says if he takes another day off, he will be fired. He attends the funeral anyway and his boss fired him. Some of the family and medical leave evidence included:
- A letter from the funeral home stated the only day the funeral could be booked was on a workday.
- The phone call log showed the employee was making work calls after hours and on weekends to keep up with work.
- The employee has lied about absences in the past (discovered through text messages and social media posts) and had been given multiple warnings according to company data.
Text Message Example:
Mary: “I need to take a day off on Friday; I’ve worked extra hours, so I’m entitled to it.”
Kate: “You have had too many days off already.”
Mary: “It’s my mother’s funeral, I need to have the day off, it’s within my legal rights.”
Kate: “I suggest you find another job!”
