Workplace stress and the FMLA: A good offense is a great defense

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) may be an option for an employee that is suffering from workplace stress, especially if it rises to the point of a serious health condition that affects the employee’s ability to perform work duties. Once FMLA has been identified as an option, the employee can take a leave of absence all at one time or have some type of intermittent leave that allows for them to modify their schedule.
