How large is your HR department? In an ideal setting, you request leave from HR. They will give you paperwork that your doctor needs to certify. HR will see that paperwork. Your boss should not see the paperwork, they should only be told that you’re taking leave for x amount of time and then they get an update when you come back. If you need restrictions when you come back, that may be a conversation that has to happen with HR and your boss. But for the leave itself, nobody but HR needs to know the underlying condition.

Is it worth it to let the employee leave and spend months looking for a replacement causing more stress/burnout with others?
