When It is Legal to Put An Employee on Floating Status

Situation:  An employee who was hired as project manager filed an emergency leave of absence and announced her intention to resign following her disappointment over the continued employment of another employee in the company.   Because of the importance of her role in the company’s only project at the time, the employer sought her replacement so as not to disrupt business.  The disgruntled employee, however, later changed her mind about leaving the company and decided to resume her work.  The employer informed her that because they were constrained to hire a replacement when she threatened to leave, she would have to be placed on “floating status” in the meantime.
