What Is FMLA Leave? 

FMLA Leave is a type of unpaid leave provided by the Family and Medical Leave Act. It was introduced to allow any eligible employee to simultaneously handle their job duties and personal responsibilities – it is possible to spend days, weeks, and even months away from the workplace for particular reasons with a properly filled out and accepted request. Each year, you may qualify for twelve FMLA Leave weeks if you complied with its eligibility requirements:

  • You have been employed with your current business for twelve months or more;
  • You have worked 1,250 hours and more in the last year;
  • Your organization employs fifty or more people whose main place of residence is within a 75-mile radius of the workplace. 

These situations let you request FMLA Leave:

  • You cannot go to work due to a medical condition – a serious illness or injury;
  • You need to provide care to an immediate family member (spouse, child, or parent) with health issues;
  • You are planning to give birth and then care for your child;
  • You are preparing to adopt or foster a child and then care for them;
  • Your family member (spouse, child, or parent) is called to active military duty in a foreign country or needs to attend a military-related activity.

Where to Get FMLA Forms?

You can ask the human resources department or your direct supervisor for any FMLA form you need. Additionally, you can request assistance if you do not know how to fill out the form properly. Employers are welcome to download and use our templates when composing their own forms.
