Legal Question in Medical Leave in New Jersey

I had medical leave starting 3/26/13 ending 5/27/13. I had unpaid leave starting 8/21/13 ending 9/5/13. I began medical leave again on 10/1/13. I received a letter from my employer on 10/4/13 stating that as of Oct. 4th I had exhausted my FMLA. I was terminated effective Oct. 15, 2013. I was never notified that the unpaid leave from 8/21 - 9/5 was being counted against my FMLA. I would like to know if I have grounds for wrongful termination.

You may have a possible FMLA claim; however, it is best that you speak with an attorney familiar with employment law so that your potential claim can be ascertained as to its viabilty.
