A: Yes, FMLA can run at the same time as workers' compensation. There is nothing that prohibits this.

A: I agree with Mr. Belt. Workers’ compensation and FMLA accomplish different goals and can be taken together. Workers’ compensation provides wage loss and medical benefits, but does not protect your job. On the other hand, FMLA does not give any monetary or medical benefits, but does provide job protection.
