I need some advice. We have an employee who has been working for us since April 2012. He does not have vacation or sick time until next April. Last Thursday, November 1st. His wife called and said he never made it home from work. Myself and his supervisor, called his cell numerous times, leaving him a message to call us as we were concerned. My employer called all the hospitals in the area to see if he was there. (He has diabetes and does not take care of himself).
Our first thought was something happened, and we were concerned (I was worried). He does not qualify for FMLA, and he has had three "No Call, No Show". He told his Supervisor Sunday night he was having problems and that the state may Baker Act him. We have no documentation, or verification he was hospitalized at a psych hospital.
What are my requirments for this since he claims it is medical, and he told his Supervisor. So I am hearing it 2nd hand, and the employee's phone has been shut off. Can he be terminated?
