What are the rules for requesting FMLA leave?

by on
in FMLA Guidelines,Human Resources

Q. Does an employee who wants to take FMLA leave have to specifically ask for it by name?

A. It depends. If an employee is requesting FMLA leave for the first time, he or she does not specifically need to ask for FMLA leave by name or even mention the FMLA. The employee is required to give at least a verbal notification that is sufficient to make the employer understand that he or she needs FMLA leave and the anticipated timing and duration of the leave.

However, an employee who has previously been granted FMLA leave must specifically reference the qualifying reason or state that he or she needs FMLA leave.
