Protecting Your Rights Under the FMLA
Under the federal FMLA, employers with 50 or more employees must grant eligible employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave during a 12-month period for any one or more of the following reasons:
Wisconsin Family and Medical Leave Law requires all covered employers to grant employees of either sex up to 6 weeks of leave in a 12‑month period for these same conditions.
Upon return from FMLA leave, the employer must return the employee to the same position or to an “equivalent position with equivalent benefits, pay, status, and other terms and conditions of employment.” During leave, an employee is entitled to maintain health benefits coverage by paying the employee’s share (if any) of the premiums.
