Our company does not have a Moonlighting Policy. We do client care in the homes of our clients.
We have an employee who fell and broke her hip while skiing. She received a note from her doctor stating she can return to work with lifting restrictions and the use of a walker. The employee's supervisor told the employee that she would create a safety concern if she returned to work with these restrictions. FMLA information was sent to the employee last week and has not been returned.
The mother of the client called the agency and informed us that our employee is working for the family as an independent contractor. The mother went on to say that our employee plans on returning to work with us so she can continue to receive health benefits. Do we have an obligation to provide FMLA benefits if the employee is working for another employer?
