Q. If an employer is not covered by the, is the employee entitled to leave time for the birth of a child, the employee’s serious medical condition or the serious medical condition of a family member?
A. No. North Carolina does not require employers to provide such leave to employees. The FMLA applies only to employers that have 50 or more employees. Some states have adoptedlaws to cover employers with fewer than 50 employees, but North Carolina has not done so.
- Providing additional leave? Employee loses some rights
- FMLA entitles you to request proof worker's parent has serious health condition
- Don't be intimidated by sudden disability claim during discipline
- Employee in drug treatment? Consider DATWA before firing
- Base FMLA eligibility on date leave begins, not date employee requests it
