Workers Compensation Claim? Light Duty? Remember The FMLA!

A recent decision out of the Eleventh Circuit is a good reminder for employers on how the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and state law workers compensation schemes overlap and interact. The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal statute that entitles eligible workers who need to recover from a serious injury to take up to twelve weeks of unpaid leave during any twelve-month period. Employers are prohibited from interfering with, restraining, or denying an employee’s efforts to exercise any FMLA right. Separately, most states require employers to provide their employees with workers compensation benefits. Workers compensation allows an employee who is injured in a work-related accident to receive payments for all reasonable medical care and lost wages resulting from that injury.
