Workers Comp Termination
We have a FT employee on WC for a month now. Due to business reasons, we need to restructure and the employees position as a Mgr will be consolidated with another positon, which happens to be the new one as a Director. The current mgr will not qualify for the director positon, as it requires an RN license and she has an LPN. With that said, the mgr is not on FMLA and back to FT work with follow up appts with the doc. Also, we will give her the option of transfering/applying for other positions if she qualifies.
I've heard some laws are different in certain states on letting an employee on wc go. I am in FL and think I should consult with an employment attorney since there is that added layer with the wc.
What are your thoughts and how would you handle the lay off?
