When you need to take care of your health or a family member’s health, it’s reasonable to assume that you’ll need time off work to handle doctor’s appointments, hospital visits, and so on. Employers must accommodate your needs according to state and federal laws. That usually means providing unpaid leave, as long as you have worked for your employer for the minimum period of time. When employers deny you the time you need to recover, it can affect both your health and your work, and it can possibly lead to a dispute over family or medical leave.
