FMLA in Ohio is supplemented by the Ohio Military Family Leave Law (OMFLL). The OMFLL states that employees who are the parent, legal guardian, or spouse of a member of the U.S. Armed Services who is called to active duty for more than 30 days or who is injured, wounded, or hospitalized on active service, is entitled to 10 days or 80 hours of unpaid leave, whichever is less, with benefits continuation, as long as their employer employs at least 50 employees. These rights are granted in addition to provisions of federal FMLA in Ohio.
FMLA in Ohio, like many states having supplemental laws to federal FMLA, can be confusing. But a flurry of seven and even eight-figure lawsuit judgments have made it clear that ignorance is not a realistic defense. In addition, due to the perceived success of recent Department of Labor (DOL) audits, reports are confirming that the number of DOL audits and investigations is going to increase. So the best defense is still a good offense. And in this case, a good offense is a FMLA leave administration system that seamlessly stays current with federal and state legislation requirements, provides a clear and concise audit trail, and is user-friendly to administrative staff. FMLA in Ohio doesn’t have to be a four-letter word.
