Florida Family Medical Leave Act Attorney (FMLA)

The FMLA covers employees that:

  • Are employed by a company of 50 or more employees
  • Have been employed for at least 12 months
  • Have worked at least 1,250 hours during the 12 month period immediately preceding the absence

Under the FMLA, covered employees are:

Eligible to take up to 12 weeks of medical leave in a one-year period.

The reasons for medical leave can include:

  • The birth or adoption of a child.
  • Caring for a spouse, parent, or minor child who cannot care for him or herself.
  • A serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the essential functions of the job with or without reasonable accommodation.
  • The leave of absence can be unpaid. The FMLA has different methods of calculating the one-year period and requires the employer to have an FMLA policy.
