Assertively Fighting for the Rights of Our Clients
Eligibility for FMLA
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) only applies to certain employees. In order to be covered by FMLA, you must meet a few key requirements.
First, you must work for a covered employer. This includes all federal, state, and local employers, as well as schools. It also includes private employers who employ 50 or more employees for at least 20 workweeks during the year.
Second, you must work at least 12 months and at least 1,250 hours during that period prior to taking leave. Third, the employee’s job must take place at or within 75 miles of a location where at least 50 employees work.
Finally, you are only entitled to take time off work for specific reasons.
You may be granted leave under the FMLA if you:
- Have a serious medical condition
- Need to care for an immediate family member who has a serious medical condition
- Give birth to a child and need to care for that child
- Adopt a child and need to provide the subsequent required care
- Have an urgent need for time off due to the military deployment of your spouse, son, daughter, or parent to a foreign country
