  • Refusing to allow employees time off for:
    • Surgery, illness, or other eligible medical reasons
    • The birth or adoption of a new child
    • The placement of a child in foster care
    • Caring for a sick child, spouse, or parent
  • Firing employees who ask for leave
  • Failing to permit employees to return to the same or comparable position after leave
  • Refusing to reinstate benefits after leave
  • Subjecting employees who ask for leave to excessive workloads in an attempt to create a job performance issue that will be grounds for termination
  • Engaging in constructive discharge tactics
