Thank you for trusting your question to JA today. I’m happy to be of assistance.
Discovery is the process by which you ask and answer questions so that you can better understand the strengths and weaknesses of your case. In terms of answering, you'll only have to worry about that when you receive a request. They'll be in the form of interrogatories and document requests. You answer the questions and provide the documents, if you have them.
So, what you should do is send them a list of questions called interrogatories. These questions should be directed at evidence concerning your claim of FMLA discrimination and that really will depend on what you are actually arguing here as the evidence supporting the FMLA discrimination. You'll also want to ask who they intend to call as witnesses on their behalf so that you can know who to talk to (called a deposition) or you can ask what they generally will testify to.
