FMLA’s 1250 Hour Eligibility Requirement is Absolute.

Ogletree Deakins • October 01, 2008
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides that an employee is entitled to leave under certain circumstances, including a serious health condition that makes that individual unable to perform the functions of his or her job. Employers are prohibited from interfering with an eligible employee’s right to take the leave associated with that act. Under the FMLA, an “eligible” employee is one who has been employed for at least 12 months at the company, and who has worked a minimum of 1250 hours during the 12-month period immediately prior to the leave request.
