Is it legal for a company to make its employee use fmla when they need to use the restroom?
May 16, 2011

I have fmla, I have a serious health problem. I had gone to the doctors and had gone on new medicines. My doctor said that the medicine might upset my stomach and I might have to use the bathroom more. I brought a note from my doctor and my supervisor refused to take it. She said from now on if I left my desk to use the bathroom I would have to use my fmla for it. Is this legal?

Response from Ms. Franzoi

you should go to HR and discuss this with them.
