Legal Questions & Answers

I'm very sorry to hear you are going through such a rough time. It must be very difficult to care for your parent while also managing the stress of work. Although your employer may not be breaking the law by contacting you and asking you to return to work, they are obviously displaying a lack of sensitivity and compassion which is just a shame. Please remember, Massachusetts is an "at will" state which means if you are employed at will, your employer does not need good cause to fire you nor do you need to provide a reason to quit. Good luck and I hope this turns out well for you.
