The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal law requiring companies with over 50 employees to guarantee up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave each year without no threat of a loss of employment to employees under certain circumstances. Within the leave, employers must maintain the employee’s health benefits.
Like any other federal employment law, there are obligations for employers. Failure to comply with those requirements, leave the employer liable to penalties.
