How much notice are employees required to give when they need FMLA leave?

by on
in FMLA Guidelines,Human Resources

Q. Can our employee take FMLA leave without first giving us notice that she needs leave?

A. Employees can’t simply take FMLA leave on a whim. They must provide their employer at least some notice, depending on the circumstances.

An employee who needs foreseeable FMLA-qualifying leave is required to provide at least oral notice sufficient to make the employer aware of the need for the leave and its anticipated timing and duration.

An employee who needs unforeseeable FMLA-qualifying leave must, as soon as practical, provide sufficient information for the employer to reasonably determine whether the FMLA applies to the leave request.
