With all the best will in the world, family and medical emergencies do happen from time to time. If it hasn’t happened you yet, chances are it will at some point, although it’d be great never to have to deal with such a potentially tricky time. The Family and Medical Leave Act, or FMLA, was designed to stop employers from penalizing their employees for attending to these emergencies but, as always, there are still some who will try to work around the FMLA, or act as though it doesn’t apply to them.
Under the terms laid out by the FMLA, you are entitled to take a reasonable paid leave of absence should a medical emergency, or family matter, crop up. This may include, but isn’t limited to, attending the birth of your child, or caring for an unwell parent, spouse or child. Perhaps a member of your immediate family has developed a serious illness, and needs you to care for them. While you may be more than happy to help, problems at work are the last thing you need when you’re already in such a stressful position.
