To exercise your legal rights under FMLA, you will need to request your employer’s procedures, forms and other requirements.

The federal Family Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”) grants employees who are facing either their own medical or emotional difficulties, or those of a family member, the right to take up to 12 weeks off, without pay. It also provides that, in most instances, they are entitled to their job upon return, provided their job still exists.

For those with family members who are not well, or themselves not well, it may be very helpful to request their employer’s forms and procedures for each. Just making the request, by email, affords the employee a certain level of “legal protection, and a kind of “leverage” in that a record is made of your intention to exercise such legal rights.
