I live in NJ. I took a brief leave of absence due to pregnancy. My employer hired someone to fill in for me, even though, I told him I would be returning to work. When I spoke to him regarding my return he stated I could not return to work. I worked part time as did the person who replaced me. I was willing to split the time with her and he said there was not enough work, however, she is now been hired for full time. I have been researching the law and it seems because I work for a small business I have no recourse. Is this true? Am I out in the cold only because of the number of employees in the office? Thank you for your time.
