Discrimination on the Job

questions & answers

Question: My father has cancer and I had submited an FMLA with my employer. They had approved the FMLA. I was required to submit my hours of FMLA used to HR. I have no problem submitting the hours of FMLA used but my problem is when other employees who are on FMLA is not submitting the hours weekly and was not being tracked like I am, shouldnt that fall under Discrimination under FMLA? I think that most of the HR personnel are only there to help the employer but not the employees.Dept labor should enforce that the HR employees should come from a 3rd party that will ensure everyone is treated fairly.

Answer: The U.S. Dept. of Labor's website http://www.dol.gov/wecanhelp/info.htm has a wealth of information. They can also walk you through how to file a complaint. You may also want to contact the Arizona Industrial Commission at www.ica.state.AZ.us
