What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? TX
Can an employer require the employee to use both PTO and FMLA when they are absent due to the illness/issue for which the FMLA is approved? The policy at work states that if you use FMLA and have PTO on the books you must use it, but doesn't actually say if you use PTO you must also use FMLA.
Furthermore, when returning to work from time off for sickness, policy requires the employee to completing a form not just showing the hours off but also detailing the medical reason why.
Lastly, can they require you to apply for FMLA just because you've missed two days (regardless of how far apart) for the same illness?
