GrannyPantiesRock:  Congratulations about the upcoming adoption. For FMLA, you need to give an employer 30 days advance notice for a foreseeable leave. I would think that the adoption agency would at least give you 30 days notice, right? I agree about waiting until after the buyout takes place so they don’t try to get rid of you for that reason.

GrannyPantiesRock:  Yeah I can see how this is a tough situation then. Since you technically have notice of the potential to be called at any time I think you have to tell them now in order to comply with the notice requirement. If they decide not to keep you during the merger I think it’ll be tough to claim discrimination even though that is probably what it is. I’m sorry you’re going through this. One potential silver lining is that you will probably get severance and  unemployment and this will give you more paid time with the baby.

Best of luck!</div>

I’m a little fuzzy on if you’re remaining a sub-contractor for the original company or completly switching to the new one; whose payroll will you be part of (original or new company?)

I would ask your HR a very open-ended question about it [in writing if possible] and ask something along the lines of “How will switching companies to the new company affect our benefits?” Then you can specificially bring up insurance/FMLA etc after that. Since the whole company is in transition, it would be fairly normal to have those questions asked of HR.
