Employment Law

Disability Discrimination

Are there other laws that allowed injured employees to receive time off from work?

Yes, the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) entitles a worker up to 12 weeks of work leave for a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the functions of his or her job. FMLA leave is either unpaid or paid at the employer’s discretion.
