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?
