I am returning to my company on August 27 after being out on FMLA for maternity. My district manager was hired a few months before my leave and had been making my life a mess before I left. She wrote me up for something out of my control and I even overheard her on the phone say she could get someone in my store to run it like a gold mine. I contacted HR and their brilliant solution was to have me discuss my issues with her directly. This got no where. I went out on leave May 22 and had my son prematurely. I discovered last month that my job as a store manager was posted online for people to apply. Upon contacting my boss, I asked her if I could transfer to a store closer to home then, even if the store manager position isn't open it is under my assumption they have to give me a similar management position with the same pay under FMLA laws. The next similar position (since she is filling my position in my location) would be co-manager which is the store manager supplement. During our conversation she told me they "got rid" of co-manager positions in the company and the only position she could give me would be an assistant manager with less pay and hours. I have found several co-manager postings online for other stores, so it is obvious that the company did not do away with these positions. Is this legal?
