New to FMLA, please help
Employee has been off work a day here, two days there, etc. for the past 6 weeks due to what has finally been diagnosed as an aneurysm. When an employee calls in sick how can you designate it as FMLA? She has missed several days in these 6 weeks and I am sure is looking at surgery. Should we have done something during these past weeks to classify any of those days as counting toward FMLA? I'm guessing we cannot go back now and say those were FMLA days, right? Can we only call it FMLA if she misses 3 consecutive days? What if the next week she only misses 1 day?
