I recently applied for FMLA after a sudden event. The FMLA was needed to care for my aging mother after the death of my brother. I requested that the FMLA run from 12/11/17 to 1/8/18. A medical certification needed to be completed and returned by 12/15. M

Employer is citing unexcused absences for the week of 12/11 to 12/15. How can this time be considered unexcused when the request for FMLA is being processed?

If FMLA time was approved for the period in question, the employer cannot interfere with FMLA rights. An employee must demonstrate a denial of benefits to which the employee is entitled.
