Cheshire, CT asked in Employment Law for Connecticut

Q: I am a teacher and took FMLA leave. Snow days occurred during the leave. Can my employer require me to make up the days

I'm a teacher in CT and the snow days occurred during my 12 weeks of FMLA. My employer is requiring that I use 12 concurrent weeks and not intermittent leave. Am I required to come back in 12 weeks and still have to make up the time (snow days) at the end of the year? US Dept of Labor said no and sited statute 825.603, but I am having trouble reading this clearly.

A: If the employer is counting the snow days against your FMLA leave, you cannot be required to make it up. But the employer should not count the snow days against your FMLA leave, in which case you could be required to make it up.
