Is our employee entitled to take FMLA leave so she can try out a new job?

by 03/15/2013

Q. The minor child of one of our employees has a disability. She was approved to be his personal care attendant and requested FMLA leave to see if she would like to do this as a job going forward ... I know FMLA is available to care for a child, but can she use FMLA as a way of trying out a new job?
