“I’m out on medical leave, placed on P.I.P., let go, and in need of a referral for legal assistance . . . can you help?
Published on November 13th, 2008 by Alan L Sklover
Question: I was employed for 7 years with a company. Because of anxiety and depression in July I went out on a “FMLA” leave of absence. When I returned in August, I was placed on a Performance Improvement Plan (“P.I.P.”), and given 45 days to improve. In September, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and scheduled for surgery in November. In October I was terminated, and given a “severance agreement” to sign that seems to say I forfeited my bonus for the year. I am in need of a referral to an employment attorney in my area, ASAP. Can you help?
