Woman-and-doctor-chemoThe Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides certain employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave per year. It also requires that their group health benefits be maintained during the leave. Employees are eligible for leave if they have worked for their employer at least 12 months, at least 1,250 hours over the past 12 months, and work at a location where the company employs 50 or more employees within 75 miles.

The U.S. Department of Labor website  provides details on the law and what your rights are under the Family Medical Leave Act. You can find more information and a sample letter requesting time off under FMLA in the toolkit section of the PBCC insurance guidebook “Breast Cancer: Covered or Not?”.
