When Your Employee Calls Off Sick with 'Flare-Ups,' Is This Sufficient Notice of the Need for FMLA Leave?
FMLA InsightsLink to more items from this source
July 29, 2021

"Using a term like 'flare-up,' which is not tied to any particular medical condition, fails to put an employer on notice of the need for FMLA leave. In this case, the denial of FMLA clearly is defensible.... If Ed had reported that he was having flare ups 'due to his depression,' or that he 'needed to take FMLA' because of his medical condition, this might very well be a different kind of case. These nuances can make or break your FMLA case." [Render v. FCA, No. 19-12984 (E.D. Mich. Jul. 19, 2021)]
