Family Medical Leave Act

questions & answers

Question: Can you get fired if you are on FMLA?

Answer: The Family Medical Leave Act is addressed in 29 U.S.C. Chapter 28  and does not protect all employees. In order to be considered a covered employee, the following three requirements must be met: 1. The individual must work for a company that has 50 or more employees within 75 miles of the workplace; 2. The individual must have worked for the company for at least one year before taking medical leave; and 3. The individual worked at least 1,250 hours in that year. (See 29 U.S.C § 2611(2)). In addition, our article giving an overview of FMLA may offer some assistance and more information to help answer your question.
