What Is The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)?

The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federally-mandated law which guarantees that employees who meet certain qualifications can take up to a 12-week medical leave of absence from their job without fear of losing their position or their insurance benefits. Any individual who works for an employer that has at least 50 full-time employees may request this type of medical leave for the birth and care of a newborn child, for the adoption or placement of a foster child, to care for a parent, child or spouse who has come down with a serious medical condition or to recover from a personal health condition that has made it impossible for the individual to perform his or her duties.

When Could You Re-open A Closed Workers' Comp Case?

Being injured while on the job can be devastating to both the injured worker and his or her family. In some instances, what originally appeared to be a minor injury may actually prove to be much more serious and life-threatening than the injured worker may have realized. Should that be the case, it may be in the worker's best interests to have his or her workers' compensation case re-opened. First and foremost, workers' compensation benefits will be able to provide an injured worker with the financial means necessary to get all accident-related medical expenses paid.
