    Clarification:

    cyjeff is correct that there is no such thing as stress leave, if by stress leave you mean a specific form of leave with its own parameters, eligibility requirements, and specifically defined for stress.

    It is possible for stress to aggravate or create another medical condition to the point where leave is appropriate. But in that case the leave is for the other condition, not for stress.

    Not to mention that there is no such thing as "stress leave".

    Or none of us would ever show up at work again.

    Yes you can file a claim. No, it doesn't protect your job if you would otherwise be terminated. Any claim filed under these circumstances is going to be scrutinized to death. It looks more like retaliation for the investigation or a last ditch attempt to preserve ones job. Be prepared for an uphill battle.

    Stress Leave... California

    Is it possible for an employee to file a disability claim for stress leave while they are under a 24 hour investigation pending termination.

    For example: An employee was sent home on Administrative leave until an 24 hour investigation has been completed, within that 24 hour time span the employee filed a disability claim for stress leave is that legal and if so can the employee still be terminated?
