Employer Coverage

Based on your selections, it appears the employer is covered by the FMLA, and the employees are under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Labor for the administration of the FMLA.

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.

If you have already established employee eligibility, continue to the Main Menu.

For more information on this aspect of the FMLA, see the FMLA regulations: § 825.108, § 825.109
