In this edition of our podcast, we discuss attempts to use the FMLA to obtain leave for travel and recreational purposes. We tackle questions including:

  • Is visiting a faith healer considered medical treatment under the FMLA?
  • Is an employee entitled to FMLA leave for a vacation with a seriously ill spouse?
  • What issues should an employer consider when responding to a request for FMLA leave for travel or recreational activity prescribed as treatment for a serious health condition?
