If an employee meets their 12 week period of FMLA, can we make them work a year without the same FMLA? I know who is eligible and what is covered but I am unsure about when an employee meets the 12 weeks since that means they have missed 480 hours of work basically.

The U.S. Department of Labor states the following on eligibility for FMLA:

· The employee is eligible provided they work for an eligible employer (more than 50 employees within 75 miles).

· The employee must have worked for the employer at least 12 months.

· The employee must have work at least 1,250 hours. Generally a full time employee works only 2,080 but that is not the qualifier. Only 1,250 hours are required to be eligible.

Those are the rules to follow when determining eligibility for FMLA.
