|Can an Employee Decline FMLA Leave Simply by Checking a Box on a Form?|
Sept. 28, 2015
"[A recent federal district court] decision ... gives us good insight into what we need to include in our leave request forms to insulate us from an FMLA interference claim:  As a general rule, employers should use a general leave of absence request form, allowing employees to specify any of the reasons for their need for leave.  If you ask an employee to affirmatively indicate whether they are requesting FMLA leave -- by checking a box or specifically stating so -- it is imperative that you provide enough information about what the FMLA is." [Amstutz v. Liberty Ctr. Bd. of Ed., No. 13CV2385 (N.D. Ohio Sept. 9, 2015)]
