Q. If an employer is not covered by the FMLA, 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 adopted employee leave laws to cover employers with fewer than 50 employees, but North Carolina has not done so.
