…you may not be eligible to benefit from The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). FMLA http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/statutes/fmla.htm permits an employee to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave during any 12-month period for pregnancy complications, maternity or paternity leave, care of the employee’s own serious health condition, or care of an immediate family member (spouse, child, parent) who has a serious health condition.
An employee is eligible to take FMLA leave if the employee:
1. Worked for the employer for at least 12 months;
2. Worked for the employer for at least 1,250 hours during the previous 12 month period before the leave; and
3. Works at a location with at least 50 employees who are employed by the employer within 75 miles of that location.
If you and your employer do not meet these requirements, you may be facing an income shortfall as a result of the time you are on unpaid leave, not to mention related healthcare expenses.
An insurance agent who is knowledgeable and advocates worksite best practices can (and should) advise you, as well as your employer, of your options to help protect both of you against this potential loss of income and productivity.
