At Meuser Law Office, P.A., we regularly have employees come to us with questions regarding the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). This law involves an employee’s entitlement to leave, maintenance of health benefits during leave, and their ability to get their job back after taking leave. This law does not entitle an employee to wage loss benefits during leave but it does have some other substantive protections that will be outlined in this article. There are important distinctions between the federal and state Family and Medical Leave Acts, and it is crucial that you first determine whether you are a qualified employee working for an employer subject to the FMLA. This eligibility is discussed at length in the first part of this article and in a recently posted blog article.
