Our blogging colleagues over at FMLA Insights just posted a wonderful story about an employer who refused to let an employee’s son call in for him or her to explain a sudden absence. When the employee did not call, it fired her. The story ends well with the employee getting reinstated with a lot of money, but is also useful because it (and the actual court decision it is based on) explain when an employer must accept someone calling in for an absent employee.
