does anyone work for a contracted company under correctional medical services? in our state we were contracted by cms to provide mh care to the offenders and then lost that contract last year. what i am needing to find out is if cms is ultimately our employer or was the contracted employer our employer? i am asking this because we have lost 3 contracts now and everytime we lose benefits and have to start over again! am i elgible for fmla with cms even though i was "subcontracted" by cms? they ultimately decided our wages, time off, policies etc. with the subcontractors we worked for. any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
