Chris Lessard, JD

Virtually every medical office manager will at some time have an employee who requests a maternity or medical leave of absence (LOA).

But employee LOAs can be legally tricky AND place heavy staffing and workload burdens on small and mid-sized practices.  Not only do you risk potential discrimination claims for violating LOA laws, you also face scheduling and staffing conflicts and shortfalls that can impact quality of patient care.

What does the law say you can and can’t doHow much LOA time should you grant?  Should LOA time be paid or unpaid?  What are the rules for returning to work?  What happens if you DENY an LOA request?
