The Family and Medical Leave Act is probably THE most complex piece of federal employment legislation ever passed.


Trying to administer FMLA creates many questions. The first two questions are,


“What type of leave is being requested?” and

“What documentation do I need?”


Then the question is: What is the FMLA request for:


  • Birth of a child?
  • Adoption of a child?
  • A block of time?
  • Intermittent?
  • Reduced Schedule?
  • Episodic Illness?
  • Chronic Illness?
  • Qualified Exigency?
  • Military Relative Wounded in Action?
  • For the Employee?
  • Employee’s Spouse?
  • Employee’s Child?
  • Employee’s Parent?
  • Is it a worker’s comp injury?
