Family Medical Leave Act

questions & answers

Question: If you have only missed one day at work, Are you required to give your employer a doctors note? I thought you had to be absent for at least three days before a doctors note is required

Answer:

Rules such as the requirement of a Doctor's note after missing a day of work are not regulated by any federal law.  Instead these rules are left up to the indvidual discretion of the company itself.  To find out what your employer requires you may want to check your employer handbook if one was provided.
