Return dates can affect family and medical leave

Employees need to take family and medical leave for a variety of reasons. A father may need time to bond with a newborn baby daughter, or a mother may need time to take care of a sick son.

That way, they can make sure that they don't make mistakes that can jeopardize their time off.

As the Baby Boomer generation edges towards retirement, the United States is hurtling into a new era.
