WC & Intermittent FMLA
I have a recent WC claim (diagnosed as mild carpal tunnel). The worker has requested FMLA paperwork in the event she needs to miss work on occasion due to hand pain. We do not know at this point what treatment her dr will pursue.
It should be noted that the employee has exhausted her regular excused time off and been advised that she would need a doctor's slip to take off (intermittently) for her hand. She requested the FMLA paperwork after I told her that her the dr needed to authorize her WC absences.
I know about intermittent FMLA and dr recertification for non-work conditions. Does anyone treat WC differently?
