Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

Is My Job Protected If I Take FMLA Leave?

Next » « Previous


The FMLA requires that upon return from FMLA leave, you must be restored to your original job or to an equivalent job with equivalent pay, benefits, and other terms and conditions of employment, UNLESS:

  • You are a "key employee" (as described below)
  • You stay out of work beyond the 12 weeks provided by the FMLA, except to the extent the period is extended by similar state laws or if you receive an extension as an accommodation under the Americans With Disabilities Act.

An "equivalent" job has to be substantially equal or similar, not necessarily identical or exactly the same, as the job you did before taking time off under the FMLA.
