leave of absence
Jul 2, 2003

I have been out on leave for HIV symptoms for 6 months now. My doctor thinks ill be ready to go back to work in a few months if I respond well to meds. My work has extended my leave from the 12 weeks required to another two and are reviewing to extend after that. Are they required to give me my old position back or at least the same pay in another position? Thanks for all the help

Response from Ms. Franzoi

Your employer is only required to hold your position for 12 weeks under the FMLA.
