My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: New York
My husband has been on short term disability for the last 2 months after suffering a stroke. He will be going back to work, full-time, in 2 weeks. He was told that now he will need to go on long term disability for the next 2 weeks since he has been with the company less than a year (next month will be a year). He was also told that his job has been posted because that is the company policy when an employee is employed for less than a year. This doesn't sound right to me. They know he is coming back in two weeks. It sounds like, "glad you're feeling better, and just so you know, we may be replacing you!" Is this policy legal?
