You have the following options if you are not entitled to FMLA leave:
  • Your state may have a law that is more generous than the FMLA. In that case, your state law controls.  To learn about your state law, click here.
  • You may be entitled to leave as an accommodation under the Americans With Disabilities Act.  Before you consider this option, think about whether the time you need is full time, or whether you can work part time – or even work from home for a while. If either of these scenarios is possible, you may receive some portion of your pay as well as the benefits that you did not receive during your FMLA leave.  Be careful requesting a job accommodation that has you working less than full time after using all of your FMLA leave– you may compromise your eligibility for benefits, including both health insurance and disability benefits
  • Your employer may voluntarily give you the time you need.
