Ok how you report what your status you can qualify under the act for up to
12 weeks of leave under the term serious health condition since you are
under a qualified professional in a on going treatment for a mental
condition or mental illness. If you qualify which you must meet the
following conditions required under the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993
Have you had more than 12 weeks in the last 12 months of leave if so you
employer is no longer required to hold your. If not just tell your boss
what is up show him the evaluations if he or she is having a problem
understand call your health professional and arrange a conference. Must
people always jump the gun unless they know the facts.
But there can and maybe several actions the can reverse in your favor you
need to be prepared
Your boss can demote you in a sense to a alternative job that better
accommodates to your requirements at the same rate pay and benefits if you
need to space out your leave
BUT ALL THE ABOVE IS ONLY IF YOU QUALIFY
I don't want to be a damper on your hopes or put the wrong thoughts out
there but due to your leave for evaluation which I am reading this right
from your post would be considered a mental illness or illness requiring a
mental evaluation and professional treatment . Which I understand myself as
a employer that stress and other factors do take a toll on everyone and we
all may need some help time to time
If you have a non understanding boss . If this is so your employer can
require you to under go a evaluation that proves you are able to basically
do your job. The employer will have to pay for this. Or they can require a
independent 3rd party health professional to certify your medical leave.
The employer can use this leave against you if they want you out but if any
of this happens you don't want to be at that job anyways

Last week I called my EAP. I'm sorry to have to admit this...I was ready
to do something to myself. Not suicide. Just something to let years of
anger out of me. You've heard of trephining maybe? Not sure if it's
spelled right. Where they used to put a hole in the skull long ago, to
let out the (ahem) evil spirits that made a person mentally sick. I was
put on a week's leave pending evaluation. I had my eval earlier today.
They want me off another week.
How do you tell HR or your boss that you need the time without losing
your a$$? Or your income, or ability to ever find another job again?
Especially if it's psychiatric. You all know what kind of stigma is
associated with mental illness: don't listen to her, she's crazy. Oh,
she's just a nut, no way she can be a productive human being.
Emotionally unstable, oh GAWD I don't want one of THOSE in MY company.
How do you report it? I'm supposed to go back tomorrow. Now I have a
letter from a CSW saying I need at least another week, maybe more
pending a second eval later in the week; my psychiatrist has been called
for back-up, that is to say another letter authorising leave. I am so GD
ashamed. God, I'm my own victim of stigma. Anyone familiar with FMLA
(Family Medical Leave Act) ? Can I go get something part time if this is
extended; something less stressful than having my neck verbally wrung
for eight hours at a stretch?
I wish customers were cats. Sometimes the four-leggers are better than
