Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

What If A Benefit Such As Health Insurance Changes While I Am On FMLA Leave?

Next » « Previous


The FMLA does not provide any greater rights to benefits for eligible employees than they would receive if they worked continuously during the leave.

Plan changes that apply to active employees also apply to employees on FMLA leave.  For example, if premiums increase or deductibles become higher for everyone in your class, your coverage is affected as well.

NOTE: An employee who would have lost benefits if continuously employed instead of taking FMLA leave is not entitled to retain the benefits just because of the leave.
