FMLA does not cover care for siblings
My co-worker is leaving work to care for her sister that is having an operation to remove a malignant tumor. She has been told that she does not qualify for FMLA benefits because she is caring for a sibling. My co-worker and sister are the only remaining members of their family. There is no one else to help care for her ailing sister. Is there not special clause in this case?
Thank you for your time.
