Fired while on workman comp in New york city
On February 12, 2012, I was hurt on the job, lacerating my right hand pinky finger. I was taken to the E.R. were Dr. ,,,,, performed micro surgery to reattach the tendon. About a week later, during the night, my tendon broke again, therefore, resulting in another surgery to reattach it. I was prescribed hand therapy 3x a week, and follow-up doctor visits every 3 to 4 weeks.
On July 2, 2012, I was able to return to work with full capabilities. I then developed carpal tunnel and 2 trigger fingers on right hand due to scar build up from previous surgery. On Nov. 29 the surgeon scheduled these surgeries at the same time to correct the problems. The doctor's note stated that I would be able to return to work with full duties, by the end of January 2013. I was terminated January 9, 2013 for having exhausted my days of family leave.
When I first got hurt, my employer mailed me a folder of papers to sign, “FMLA” , telling me that Worker’s compensation and FMLA work together, one pays for your days out, and the other guarantees your job. I called them before I signed to remind them that this had nothing to do with me being “sick” I got hurt on the job and would not apply to me, but they told me to sign and send them in ASAP and I did. I believe I was wrongly terminated, due to the emergency and the type of surgeries that I had. Is this right what they did to me?? Please Help me.
