    FMLA Question
    1. When an employee returns to work before expiration of FMLA period, can the employer state that the only available position is at a different office 3 1/2 hours away?

    2. What would be reasonable in terms of a time-frame if the employee returned to work and the employer then let the person go (dismissed/laid off-but not as part of a RIF with others)?

    Thank you
    Note-I am an employee

    1.) That would depend on the reason the only available position is 3 1/2 hours away.

    2.) Would need WAY more detail before I'd even attempt that one.

    Re #2 - agree, need more details. What would be the reason (for one thing) as to why the employee would be let go?
