Notification of termination while on STD Leave... please advise
Hello HR Friends,
I need your help.
Could anyone please direct me to the policy that states that an employee on short- term dissability should or must be advised in writing (via a separation letter) if they’ll be losing their job due to a department lay-off. (In this case there is no other position that the employee can move into) A nurse in our medical department is against this notification, because if the person is undergoing a severe medical condition this notification could make their situation worse. The older workers benefits protection act doesn't specifically say that it applies to employees on STD, perhaps I missed something? Please advise. Thank you.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
