FMLA Protects the Intention to Take Leave at a Future Date.

Ogletree Deakins • February 10, 2009
The Family and Medical leave Act allows “eligible” employees to take unpaid leave for reasons articulated in that act, including leave of up to 12 workweeks during a 12-month period for the birth or adoption of a child. The act defines “eligible employee” as one who has been employed for at least 12 months and who has worked for the employer for at least 1250 hours during the previous 12-month period. The FMLA specifically makes it unlawful for an employer to “deny the exercise of or the attempt to exercise, any right provided under the FMLA.”
