Most workers understand that employees at workplaces with 50 or more employees have the right to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid time off for either their own serious health condition or that of a close family member. But applying the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) in practice gets complicated. Which employers are covered? Who are close family members? What conditions are covered? How does leave taken during COVID-19 interact with FMLA? This course is designed for any worker curious to know more about the FMLA and worker representatives responsible to help workers navigate the process to learn the essentials of workers’ FMLA rights.
