questions & answers

Question: why do i need to use fmla if i am out of work on a work related injury,also why do i need to use all my vacation & sick leave for this?

Answer: The company may have a policy regarding use of vacation and sick leave.  Check with your company's HR department to see what the policies are.  If you feel  that the company is not following workers compensation standards, you can go to the Arizona Industrial Commission's website for information and forms to file a claim.  http://www.ica.state.az.us/claims/claims_main.aspx.  There is an article on AzLawHelp that outlines FMLA and how it works.  Go to: http://www.azlawhelp.org/articles_info.cfm?mc=2&sc=13&articleid=48.  You may also want to speak with an attorney to see what you your rights are.
