Employer Coverage - School

Based on your selection, it appears the employer is covered by the FMLA.

All public and private elementary and secondary schools are covered by the FMLA irrespective of the number of employees employed.

It is important to remember that, for FMLA purposes, employer coverage is determined separately from employee eligibility under the FMLA. Just because an employer is covered by the FMLA does not necessarily mean that an employee is eligible for leave under the law.
