Medical Leave for Very Small CompaniesSave as Favorite
I work for a very small non-profit, literally my boss (full-time) and me (part-time). All of the FMLA and ADA guidelines I've read speak of companies that have 50 or more employees. I was recently diagnosed and will be having six months of treatment. I will not be able to work. I have a letter of medical necessity from my oncologist stating that I will not be able to work for 6 to 12 months. Can I be fired? What protects my job, if anything, and what paperwork do I need to give to my boss?
