An Overview Of FMLA Regulations

The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) requires certain employers to allow eligible employees to take unpaid, job-protected leaves for certain family and medical events, such as the birth of a child and/or care of a spouse, child, or parent with a serious health condition.

Employers are subject to the FMLA if they employ 50 or more employees on each working day during each of 20 or more workweeks in the current or preceding calendar year. These employers are "covered employers" for purposes of the FMLA.

About FMLA Administration

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) was first enacted in 1993. Since then, this law has become the benchmark of governmental efforts to create a mandated healthy work-life balance and ensure the protection of employees who need to take time to care for themselves or their families.

The FMLA grants employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave during any given year to care for a new child or family member's illness. Since its enaction, FMLA claims have become fairly common, with approximately 20 percent of employees filing an FMLA claim lasting an average of six weeks each year. Not every case is considered eligible, as it should be noted:

  • Not every employer is required to grant leave. Employers with less than 50 employees aren't mandated to follow this law
  • Employees must have worked for their employer for a minimum of one year, with at least 1,250 hours of work to claim this benefit
  • Employees may be required to show medically certified proof if asked by their employer
  • FMLA law requires that employees be given a job following their leave, but it doesn't require that they are reinstated in the same position as before
Earning An FMLA Certification

The FMLA law is complex, with claims often involving corresponding disabilities or workers' compensation claims. This can result in a heavy administrative burden for employers and a confusing amount of paperwork for employees.

In addition, employers can find themselves limited by the law when it comes to their ability to contact an employee's health care provider and request information. According to FMLA regulations, direct supervisors are allowed to verify whether a medical claim is certified, but they cannot do so on their own. They're required to use a human resources professional or another administrator to make this contact.

FMLA training is available to prepare HR professionals or other management personnel to handle these cases. Due to the complexity of FMLA law, it's advisable to have team members knowledgeable about the ins and outs of following proper procedure. Earning an FMLA certificate demonstrates expertise in both the technical and practical aspects of following FMLA regulations. Contact HR Certification today to learn more.
