Please explain FMLA to me in layman's terms. Would my daughter be able to file this paperwork in her job? She takes depression medication and there have been times when they are changing or adjusting her medication and she has been late to work because of this, or has been drowsy at work because of the medication, or has had cryingbouts alone in her office.

I know I sound stupid asking these questions, but this is unfamiliar territory to me. Would she be afforded protection in her situation by filing FMLA paperwork,or would she be protected perhaps by the Americans with Disabilities Act?

Thanks for any information provided.
