The folks over at FMLA Insights put out an interesting post this week about the error an employer made denying a disabled probationary employee a LOA. It is our guess the employer never thought twice about the rights probationary employees have under the law, such as the ADA.  It is a good piece to remind union reps about the many statutory rights probationers have, whether they are government employees or not, and to circulate among unit members to let them know that they do have rights and the union is the place to come for help.  Check out “Employer Fails to Provide Leave of Absence to Probationary Employee, Pays the Price.”
