FMLA Second Opinion Not Enough to Reject Medical Leave

FMLA Second Opinion Not Enough to Reject Medical Leave

The Federal Medical Leave Act (FMLA) allows for a second opinion or third opinion when a client has concerns about the employee’s medical certification. You must be prepared to have a third certificate ready when asking for a second opinion. In 2008, the FMLA changed how they handle maternity leave and the options available. The changes affected women when it is their first time trying to claim FMLA assistance, and they came into effect in 2009. The act calls for a second opinion, if wanted, a third. FMLA is unpaid assistance, so you will only get what FMLA allows and you won’t get paid by your employer as well. FMLA is not available if the woman works for a company with less than 50 employees.
