Can my employer refuse me a new job because of my FMLA status?
Your employment is terminated effective 1 March. You already knew the position was being eliminated before you got a second intermittent FMLA. Your coverage under FMLA ends 1 March, too. They have no obligation to hire you elsewhere. You have no chance of suing. Even if you could get a new job somewhere, you would not be covered by FMLA anymore. You would have to have worked there for a minimum of 12 months, and you are limited to a maximum of 12 weeks of coverage. You've been using 1-2 weeks per month already, and now with your son's needs, once you meet the 12-month employment requirement, you appear likely to burn through your max allotment in short order.

Sure Because there is no way to prove your claims They're not required to hire someone with problems and this is you being hired for a new position.

They have no obligation to offer you a new job. Your job was protected under FMLA, but that job is not going to exist anymore and you are being let go because of it. Can they not offer you the new job because they'd prefer to have someone in that job how shows up to work more than half the time? Yep. Your chances are zero.
Yes....... you are in their eyes abusing the 'time off' and they need someone who will work and can work. Your job is terminated 1st March
