Family Medical Leave Act

questions & answers

Question: Can an Employer make you take FMLA and not fill out paperwork even though you are working and not asking to be put on FMLA?

Answer:

http://www.dol.gov/whd/fmla/

FMLA requires your employer to keep your job or a similiar job avialable to you if you must be out for a medical leave for less than 12 weeks.  As soon as you begin working FMLA ends.  Thus the 12 weeks do not need to be continuous.
