Is my employer allowed to follow me while I am on FMLA leave?

I left work early one day last week due to a "flair-up" with stress at work. I had made a stop before going home and one of my supervisors walked into the store where I was and just looked at me. Is this legal for an employer to follow you when you have left work on FMLA time?

  • Yes- they catch people cheating the system that way. Hope you weren't lifting anything too heavy at the store.

  • Yes, they need to make sure you're not committing fraud. If you're not able to work then you shouldn't have stopped by a store.

  • how is it you were on "FMLA" time?? You mean you went home sick not out on leave??

    You boss is allowed to be anywhere they would like to be. If you are in a public place there is no reason you boss can't be there too.

  • Yes, if you're in public places you can be followed by anyone.

  • Perhaps the supervisor needed to go to the store.
    Do you haveany other indications that he or she was following you?

  • How do you know the Supervisor was following you? Maybe they needed to go to that same store around the same time.
