I was granted time off to go back home (out of the country) to take care of my ailing mother. Upon her passing, I requested 3 extra days off. My employer told my wife via phone that it was ok. Upon returning to work, I was terminated because I returned 3 days late even though they told me it was ok. My actions were based on the information my employer told my wife. My former employer reneged on their word in order to terminate me after 20+ years of employment. I'd like to know if I potentially have a legal case against my former employer? Does California have a bereavement leave? What options do I have to utilize?
