-------------------------------------------------

SITUATION A
FACTS OF CASE | FMLA GUIDELINES | RELATION OF FACTS TO GUIDELINES |
Company has more than 75 employees | In order for employee to be eligible, company must have a minimum of 50 employees working within a 75 mile radius of the plant. | The company is covered ...view middle of the document...

| The employee is covered for up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave under the Family Medical Leave Act of 1993. The company is not required to cover any salary not owed or granted to the employee at the time leave is approved. |
The manager who approved the leave was no longer employed with the company when the employee returned to work. | FMLA guidelines are irrelevant to this fact. | The manager approved the leave and did not grant any pay for the duration of the employee’s leave. |
The current manager reinstated employee to his position, but denied payment for the entire leave. | An employer must provide an employee with his rights under the FMLA and is required to reinstate an eligible employee to the same or similarly equal job with the same benefits and salary upon return. | The manager followed the guidelines set by the Family Medical Leave Act of 1993. Paid leave was not granted at the time notice of eligibility was given by the previous manager, and the company is not required to cover the unpaid time. |

The 68-year-old employee has been employed with the company for 42 years and received a stellar performance review. The 32-year-old employee received an average performance review. | The ADEA makes it unlawful for a business to give advantage over a younger employee based on age unless age is a solid qualification necessary to perform the duties of the position. Seniority and job performance must be taken into account when considering promotions. | The older employee has been with the company longer than the age of the younger employee, so more experience and seniority is founded. Feedback from superiors proves that the older employee has no disability that prevents him from completing his job satisfactorily, and the job does not require age to qualify for promotion. |
SUMMARY OF FINDINGS |
