protections without FLMA
I have a short term disability that would normally provide protection under FMLA, but we have less than 50 employees so I am not eligible. I will need to miss work intermittently. My employer is now treating me differently, scrutinizing my work to a different level and seems to be ''setting up'' termination. Without FMLA do I have any protections against discrimination or harassment due to different treatment both from the interaction prior to their knowledge of the illness and in comparison to other employees? The stress is unbearable in combination of my illness.
