  • Doctor's excuse required for sick day-Florida

    My employer requires a doctor's excuse for taking a sick day.

    Is there a Federal or Florida state law that allows/prohibits/restricts an employer's mandate to secure a doctor's excuse for taking sick time?

    Thanks for you help.

    Restriction from Sick Days

    No, there aren't any restrictions on requiring a note. There are restrictions on the information that an employer can request. For example, an employer should not receive information about the medical condition...only the restrictions that the medical condition requires and/or that the employee visited the doctor.
