Can an employee be forced to fill out FMLA paperwork?
I have been forced to get dr's notes for my absences, and have either taken or not taken the FMLA option. This time I am choosing to not take the FMLA option but have given my employer a dr's note excusing the dates I was absent. My employer is telling me that THIS time I MUST fill out FMLA paperwork, by tomorrow no less, and get it to them. There is no option this time. Even though every other time and everyone else is given that option. Can they force me to do this as long as I complied with the dr's note?
