Benefits of FMLA can be plentiful for both employees and employers. Not the least of which, for employers, is avoidance of judgments, recently reported to reach the seven and even eight-figure dollar level for non-compliance. FMLA provides satisfaction and job-security for employees. The benefits of that appreciation can be seen by employers in the form of low FMLA leave abuse statistics, consistent employee effort, and good company morale. Up to twelve weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave per year for qualified employees and qualified conditions are among the benefits of FMLA.
To receive the benefits of FMLA, qualified employees must have worked for their employer for at least a year and completed at least 1250 hours of work within that time frame. Leave can be taken “to care for the employee’s newborn son or daughter, because of the adoption or foster care placement of a child with the employee, to care for the employee’s spouse, son or daughter, or parent who has a serious health condition, because of the employee’s own serious health condition, because of any qualifying exigency arising out of the fact that the employees spouse, son, daughter, or parent is a military member on covered active duty, or has been notified of an impending call or order to covered active duty status.” There are additional military-related benefits of FMLA.
