Surgery Complications & FMLA
We have an employee who had back surgery and was out on FMLA for several weeks and is currently working a part time schedule puttng her on intermittent FMLA. She just notified me that she had an eye/nerve complication from the surgery. She has an appointment on Monday for an outpatient procedure that will be able to correct part of the issue with plastic surgery. My question is how do I handle this in terms of FMLA and what additional paperwork do I need to request? Is this covered under the initial medical certification or do I need to ask her plastic surgeon to fill out another cert for the one day appointment? I have listed specific dates below.
She went to the eye doctor on 07/13/2010- told her she would need plastic surgery to correct issue.
She has an outpatient appt. on 07/19/2010- for plastic surgery
I am confused because she will be seeing two other doctors besides her back surgeon and will be missing two extra days of work for these appoitments.
