Hey RRJ and Suzannah:
I don't have a dog in this fight but will make an observation.
CSX get big money from the Feds for hiring and training Veterans.
These men and women are returning from multiple deployments and many of
them have been wounded, including traumatic brain injuries.
It seems to me that common sense and decency dictates that if CSX wants
the good, they have to accept the bad. If, in fact, CSX is
refusing FMLA to wounded Veterans, regardless of their seniority date,
CSX only wants the upside and none of the downside.
There are or will be millions of Veterans returning to the work force.
I would suggest the employers anticipate the issues these men and women
have and act accordingly instead of treating them like cattle. I don't
think it wise to back these Veteran into a corner!
