Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and workers' compensation are really two different things. FMLA protects and employees job while he or she is out of work following illness or injury to that employee or a family member. Workers' compensation is intended to provide income and medical benefits to injured workers. An individual may be receiving workers' compensation benefits while out on FMLA, but it is important to remember that these are really two separate issues.
