    It does, and I'm sorry for you and your mom.

    If you are required to care for her, take her to appts, etc., then yes, that would meet the criteria for FMLA.

    1. Yes, you need to, otherwise, how are they going to know?
    2. It's only right that you do, but under what circumstances do you think you might know today, but won't know for sure until tomorrow?
    3. I don't think they can require you use PTO, but hang on; I might be wrong.
    4. No idea. Is that normally what the procedure is?
    5. No. You get 12 weeks in a 12-month period total. That can be on a rolling year or a calendar year; you'll have to ask your HR person which period they use.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      re #3--FMLA requires only unpaid leave. - However, an employee may choose, or an employer may require an employee, to use any accrued vacation days or unspecified paid time off (PTO) days during an unpaid FMLA leave. In addition, an employee can choose, or an employer can require an employee, to use accrued paid sick days during an unpaid FMLA leave, but only if the employee takes FMLA leave for a reason for which the employee could otherwise use sick days.

          I'm not sure, in this particular case, that I'd even mention a "possible" call-off tomorrow, then. As long as the FMLA certification reflects that you are required to care for your mom, if she needs the care on a particular day, you can call in on that day.

          Just my $.02.

            On #4, I would doubt very much if the other company will inform your boss for you. That is something you need to ask your boss though.
            I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.
