FMLA leave eligibility

Am I eligible for FMLA leave if I need to take a leave for myself or family member?

To be eligible for a Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) leave, you must have worked for at least 12 months and 1250 hours before going out on a leave.

If eligible, you must use all of your accumulated Sick days for your own leave and all of your Family Sick days for a family member’s leave.

During your FMLA leave, your cost of benefits will remain the same for up to 12 weeks but depending on how much Sick time you have, your leave could be paid or unpaid.
