FMLA Scenario #4

Eric is out for a full week with strep throat. He went to the doctor and got a prescription for an antibiotic. Is he covered by family and medical leave?

Yes. He was treated by the doctor only once but was under continuing supervision because he was asked to let his doctor know if his condition improved after taking the antibiotics. (See question 6.) If his doctor hadn't prescribed antibiotics, Eric's time off would not be protected by FMLA and OFLA, but he would be eligible to use sick leave.
