The FMLA provides 12 weeks per year of unpaid leave for a serious illness/condition for yourself, spouse, child or parent. Once that 12 weeks is exhausted (either in one lump or intermittently) your job is not protected. If there is ANOTHER serious illness/condition which requires leave, a new application and certification by the Dr. must be filed and notice must be provided to the employer in accordance with their policies.
