Legal Question

Asked on: 1/11/13, 4:53 pm

The company I work for just recently inform us that it is going to close down. I have been with the company for 22 years and have been a good role model for the company and have put my all into my job performance. Before this announcement I was promoted to working foreman and it was going quite well. Soon after being promoted I was ask to go back to my former job to help out because several people were out on disability. I agreed to go back to help out my fellow co-workers. Things have changed since, because my father has prostate cancer and I am on FMLA and have had to take time off to help him out with doctor appointments. I wasn't directly told that is why haven't got the position back, but was told that I missed to many days. Since the plant is getting closer to it final days the Management and supervision has been very distance with those who have FMLA. Those who don't have any FMLA are being called and recommended to sister companies. Is this ground for FMLA discrimination or I am over reacting?
