    All the years in delivery taught me to see xmas as a dark time, devoid of happiness. I already feel better about it, might even get a tree this year.

    Be careful; that's a Christian traditional thing.

    It's actually pagan in origin, but xmas has really evolved into a secular, all inclusive commercial holiday in this country and the tree has become a symbol of that. I just think it looks nice :wink2:

    Do you realize that FMLA is intended to allow the family member to take unpaid time off so that they can be there to help deal with a medical issue? You cannot schedule FMLA simply to get out of Peak.

    You are a joke.....'legally covered' or not, it's quite a douchey thing to do...You are affecting everyone you work with and around during a time of year when things are challenging with a FULL staff.

    That's like me punching you in the face, then saying "oops, I slipped".
     
  17. That's lame, I hope one day you don't really need to use FMLA. Karma

    Here in California you can use it just the way he's saying. I had my second son last April 17. I still had 6 weeks of available leave come peak. I'm a man though so yes I worked all of peak. That's just my take on it. To each their own though.

    So what? How many people misuse comp to get out of peak? I'd bet THOSE numbers are staggering compared to FMLA.
