Vacation Accrual Isn’t Required During FMLA Leave

Q. I’m under the impression that our company is obligated to give employees all vacation accrued up to the time of their FMLA leave, but we’re not obligated to let employees accrue vacation leave during their FMLA leave. Am I right? —B.K., Wisconsin

A. You’re absolutely right. Under the FMLA, ADA and workers’ compensation laws, an employee is not entitled to accrue vacation days while on leave.
