FMLA Intermittent

I thought I heard it was critical to track intermittent leave and regular FT leave as separate and/or keep detailed records of what hours under which- why is this? If you deduce by hours would it matter? cumulative for FT it would still equal 480

We think that you misunderstood. It is important that an employer track all FMLA leave. It is absolutely essential that the employer track intermittent leave, because that information can be hard to reconstruct later. However, there is no requirement that full time (or continuous) FMLA and intermittent FMLA be tracked separately. As you have noted, the employee is entitled only to 12 weeks total when all types of FMLA are combined.

By the way, employees are entitled to 12 weeks of FMLA. That works out to 480 hours if the employee normally works 40 hours per week, but it will be more or fewer hours if the employee works a different schedule.
