Thank you for using JA. I am Loren, a licensed attorney for over 30 yrs., and I am here to help. I appreciate your patience as I review your question. I will post my response shortly.
Be aware, however, this is general information and no attorney client relationship is established.
The site may ask you if you wish to speak by phone for an extra charge. While I am happy to speak to you, if you wish, I am also happy to continue online. So, there is no pressure to spend extra money. Some people just prefer the speed of a phone call and that the information not be posted on the public forum.
Depression may be more of an ADA issue rather than FMLA, since it generally involves a chronic but controllable condition. That is more of a disability issue.
That means that you could seek a reasonable accommodation and, possibly sue if refused.
If you have no further questions please remember to rate my service (5 Stars) so that I am credited by JA for answering your question and also so that I may close the question.
There is no additional charge to you for a 5 star rating of my service.
