When should I apply for FMLA leave? Where do I send my completed leave of absence forms? Does FMLA include military leave? What if I have exhausted my FMLA eligibility but my military leave requires that I still be out? What type of leave may I use while on a miltary leave? What date should I put as the start date for my leave request for military leave? What if I need to return to work prior to the approved end date of my leave of absence?
