FMLA for 8 days

FMLA runs concurrent with paid days. The company is required to keep your job open for you while you are on FMLA Leave but there is no requirement that you be paid during that leave. However, you can take vacation days during that time and receive pay. But the two run concurrently if you take a paid vacation day. The same is true for sick days.
