I need to ask for help with the laws of FMLA and my employer. In the state law, it does not address the issue of the employer requesting a doctors note for every use of the FMLA. The only time that the law states that the employer can request documents is when a change in the situation occurs. This requires addition certification according to the law. According to my employer, they feel that they have the right to request doctors notes everytime that I use FMLA. According to my physicians, they have already submitted documents necessary for the FMLA and do not have time to keep submitting doctors notes. In which I agree but my employer does not. The employer had stated on our last meeting that from this meeting forward, I do need to obtain a doctors note when I use FMLA. I view this as being difficult. It feels as though their making rules up as they go. It also states in the law that they can not do such thing but they are and I need help fighting them.
Can you please help me?
