  • Designate FML when WC? Arkansas

    I know that FML and Worker's Comp run concurrrently, but are we, as an employee allowed to designate or proclaim that an ee is using up FML while he/she is on WC, just by saying so, assuming the ee is eligible foe FML?

    It is the employer's responsibility to designate the leave as FML if you believe it qualifies (and employee is eligible).

        Agree & be sure you do the regular notification to the employee that the WC leave is being considered as FMLA leave (WC & FMLA will run concurrent).
        Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
