  • Family Med leave Wisconsin

    I have an employee who has requested a Family and Medical Leave act form. She is having a baby. and the HR person keeps telling her she will have to wait until they speak to a lawyer to make sure she qualifies. Why would she not qualify? She is a full time employee and beyond her probation period.

    1. The employer must have at least 50 employees within a 75 mile radius.

    2. The employee must have worked at least one year for the company (not necessarily consecutive) AND have worked at least 1250 hours within the last year.

    The fact that she is full-time and completed the "probationary period" does not mean she meets the requirements to be covered by FMLA.
