A: I'm not sure what your question is. If you think you broke your hand, you should seek medical treatment. If your medical provider recommends that you take time off of work or gives you restrictions, you should inform your employer. If you need to miss work, and you are otherwise eligible, you should apply for leave under the Family Medical Leave Act.
