    Default NJ Non-Profit Employees No FMLA and Terminated

    My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: My mother has been employed by a non-profit company in New Jersey for approximately 13 years as part of their management team.

    Unfortunately, over the past 6 months she has been under the care of several specialists and physicians due to an illness. My question is her job is not covered under FMLA, but can she be legally terminated during her medical leave?

    Default Re: NJ Non-Profit Employees No FMLA and Terminated

    Yes, she can. The only real exception I would see is if possibly if falls under ADA. But ADA protects employees who can work with reasonable accommodation. There is a grey line on how much accommodation the employer has to make for absences. It is very dependent on details of the specific situation.

    But just because they legally can, does not mean that the employer will. I suggest your mom try to communicate as much as possible with them about when and how much she needs to be out. And see how much they are willing to work with her.
