Q. Are holidays that fall within the scheduled FMLA leave counted as leave? L.F., Washington

A. The Labor Department’s FMLA regulations say that a full week of FMLA entitlement is used when an employee is on FMLA leave for a full week, even if some of the days during that week include holidays. One caveat: If your organization closes down for a full week or more, such as during the week of Christmas, that time should not be charged against an employee’s 12-week annual FMLA entitlement.
