The Family And Medical Leave Act And Employer Protections

The FMLA entitles eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave. Eligible employees are entitled to:

Job Protection
An employee returning to work from an FMLA/CFRA leave is entitled to be restored to the same position of employment (the one held by the employee when notice was given or the leave commenced) or to an equivalent position with equivalent employment benefits, pay, and other terms and conditions of employment. An employee may be temporarily transferred to an available alternative position, for which he or she is qualified, that has equivalent pay and benefits, that better accommodates the employee's need to take intermittent leave or reduce his or her time base.
