Abuse of Intermittent
I have an employee that has intermittent FML for respitory issues. They had a flare-up and was out 3 weeks; came back with a return to work note stating they were able to return full time. I have paperwork stating they might need intermittent for occasional flare-ups 1 time every 3 months (up to 10 days). they have missed 6 times this month, stating FML but the most resent was a sinus infection. I have sent a letter to the physician showing the days missed and asking for clarification to see if this pattern of absence is in line with the original documentation. They missed Wed - Fri last week. Called in Wed afternoon stating they would be back on Thursday and then calls in Thur and Fri. Brought in a note this morning stating they can only work 32 hours a week. They are in a key position in our medical clinics 40 hours a week. Any thoughts on how to handle this? Thanks.
