Dear Evil HR Lady,
I have an employee out on Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). His wife had a baby, and he opted to take the full twelve weeks of leave. I know this is the law, and we are holding his job for his return.
However, he’s on leave during performance review time. Bonuses are based on these reviews, and some of the management team feel like he doesn’t deserve a bonus because of taking 3 months off. Do we have to give him a review? Can we skip giving him a bonus?
