    The carrier has nothing to do with FMLA. That is totally up to the employer.

    There is no reason for the employer to deny FMLA (assuming you meet the requirements for time worked) if you are going to be out of work due to workers comp.

    Designating your WC absence as FMLA (they can run concurrently) allows them to fire you sooner for medical absences than if they don't designate your absence as FMLA.

      Oh, so you are NOT out on w/c leave.

      That is where the carrier would get involved and if they aren't going to pick up the tab for you to be out of work, there won't be any leave.

        Anytime you are out while healing from a WC injury, the carrier is going to want to know that. If your doctor is certifying that you can not work and need time off, then that absolutely impacts your claim and the carrier is going to want those records. If your doctor is saying you can not work, then they owe TTD for that period. They are being responsible and proactive here. There is nothng up their sleeves, this is what they are suposed to be doing.
