Is a family leave controversy brewing at Starbucks?

Can you fire someone on FMLA leave?

If you're an employer looking to avoid lawsuits over FMLA leave, it can be tempting to believe that employees who are out on leave are "untouchable," and that altering their employment status for any reason could land you in hot water. But in fact, employees who take FMLA leave don't have any more protection against termination than other employees who didn't take FMLA leave. In other words, you as an employer are still allowed to terminate employees who take FMLA leave, as long as that termination has nothing to do with the fact of the employee taking leave in the first place.
