Lying Can Make You Ineligible for FMLA Medical Leave

“FMLA is meant for employees to use when they, or a close family member, are suffering from any type of medical illness or condition.

This is typically used if someone has cancer, just had a baby or just about anything else that a person can have.

Even if you do not want to expose your illness to your company, you must not lie about what you are going through.

If you choose to lie about your situation, it may cost you your job and you won’t be able to get the benefits that you should be able to take advantage of.

Your company will have some sort of privacy policy that they must adhere to, so you will not have to worry about your entire company finding out about what is going on with you in your personal life.”
