Sick Leave Conundrum


Interesting article from MSNBC about the pressures that employees face when their employers ask them to return to work from Family and Medical Leave before they are ready:

“Many workers . . . have  faced this conundrum [of being pressured to return to work early from leave], and it’s only gotten worse during this economic downturn as companies cut back on staffing, leaving fewer people with more work, workplace experts contend. That makes it even harder to take time off to deal with a medical condition, whether it’s their own or that of a family member.”

I’ve noticed in recent years that as Courts have made it more difficult for employees to bring ADA claims, FMLA claims seem to be more common.
