You may be protected under the FMLA if you (1) are employed at a facility that has 50 or more employees within a 75 mile radius; (2) have been employed by the employer for at least 12 months; and (3) worked at least 1,250 hours during the 12 month period immediately preceding the request for leave. Also, you must have communicated the need for medical leave to your employer. For a full analysis of your case, feel free to contact me or another employment lawyer.
