Time & Attendance
By Staff Report
Jul. 14, 1999
Leave may be available under the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 when a serious health condition exists. Such a condition exists if an employee, or the employee’s child, spouse, or parent has an illness, injury, impairment, or physical or mental condition that involves either (1) inpatient care, or (2) continuing treatment by a health care provider. Use the following guidelines to determine whether an absence can be attributed to a serious health condition.
INPATIENT CARE (check one)
CONTINUING TREATMENT (check at least one)
NOTE: Absent complications, this would not include the common cold, the flu, ear aches, upset stomach, minor ulcers, headaches other than migraine, routine dental or orthodontia problems, and periodontal disease.
