Additional Information

Employees are “eligible” for FMLA leave if they work at a worksite that has 50 or more employees within a 75-mile radius of it, they have worked for the company for at least 1 year, and they have worked at least 1,250 hours in the preceding 12-month period. Employees who work remotely, or who regularly change worksites, use the worksite they report to for this last consideration.

If an employee meets all three of these “eligibility” criteria, then they may request FMLA time off.
