Medical Leave as a Reasonable Accommodation

Medical leave issues not only arise under the FMLA and NJFLA, but also the NJLAD. Medical leaves and extensions of medical leave are a commonly recognized reasonable accommodation pertaining to disabilities. The caselaw surrounding this issue defines whether the medical leave request is reasonable or an undue burden on the employer. Whether an accommodation is reasonable is decided on a case by case basis. If you have been denied medical leave or any other reasonable accommodation by your employer, your rights may have been violated and you should contact Kurkowski Law today.
