Not FML but still need to know
I have an employee who left work for a medical emergency. Later that day her husband calls and lets me know that she was having heart issues due to stress and she will need surgery. I asked him to keep me posted. I don't want to keep bothering him for information with all that is going on but I need to know in order to plan. Is it inappropriate for me to check in with him every few days to see how things are going and whether he has an update? I don't need the details of the diagnosis but I need to know the expected return or approximate recovery period.
