Legal Question

Asked on: 9/15/13, 8:11 am

Hello,

I am currently on FMLA, caring for my mom who had surgery 3 weeks ago.

On Friday, I received a phone call from my employer who informed me that they did not believe that I was coming back to work after my 6 weeks leave ob absence because I relocated my family back to GA and that they noticed on my LinkedIn email message that I was looking for a job in GA from FL. I was given the option to either resign or get terminated because I lied to my boss that I was coming back to work and they don't believe I was coming back.

Any advice for what I should do? Do I just resign or fight the company for invading my privacy in my LinkedIn mail box and drawing a wrong conclusion. I did not lie to my boss and I really want to save my reputation. I am very hard working and have never been fired from a job. Please advice.

Thank you.
