Situation A The Family and Medical Leave Act was created in 1993 to allow qualifying employees to take an unpaid leave of absence for up to 12 weeks from their jobs for certain medical or family reasons. Those reasons are: the birth and care of a newborn child, adoption or foster care, to care for a spouse, child, or parent with a serious health condition, if the employee is unable to work due to a serious medical condition. For an employee to be eligible they must have worked more than 1250 hours in the 12 months of employment with the company and the company must employ 50 or more employees within 75 miles. A change to the Act in 2009 also allows military family leave as well. Company X has 75 employees which meets the 50 minimum employee statutes.
Western Governors University LIT1: Task 310.1.5-02, 11, 13 Situation A: The FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993) allows for eligible employees of covered employers to take an unpaid, job-protected leave and allow for continuation of their group health insurance coverage. This job-protected leave is provided so that employees can tend to the needs of immediate family. Covered employers are those employers that have 50 or more employees working for them. In this case, Company X would be a covered employer. Eligible employees are those employees that have worked for the company for 12 months or longer and have also worked at least 1,250 hours during that 12 month period of employment.
Our findings are as follows: 1. T. W. Poppy, Paternity Leave– Due to the premature birth of twins, Mr. Poppy requested and was granted 12 weeks leave to be with his spouse. After 11 weeks Mr. Poppy has asked to return to work and be paid the withheld salary from his 11-week leave. According to the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA), subject to section 103, an eligible employee shall be entitled to a total of 12 work weeks of leave during any 12-month period because of the birth of a son or daughter of the employee and in order to care for such son or daughter . Since we have over 75 employees, we must comply with FMLA.
To determine if a violation has occurred it is best to go over the circumstances surrounding the case. The Case in question is about a man who requested leave because his wife was having twins ahead of schedule. The act does state that within a year of a child’s birth an employee can take off time to take care of a child (USDL, n.d). So because the time falls within a one year period employee “A” is justified in his use of the Family and Medical leave act. To further support this would be the length of time he has been with the company.
At the end of this period the position will be reviewed and if satisfactory the continuation of your employment will be confirmed. During the probationary period either party can terminate employment by giving one week’s notice. Hours of work: Your hours of work will be 28 hours a week this breaks down to 12 weekday hours 4 weekend hours 1 sleepover which is a 12 hour shift There is a need for the employee to be flexible and these hours may be changed as required according to the employer’s needs. Under these circumstances, where hours need to be changed or additional hours worked, the employer will give as much notice as possible. Lateness: If you are going to be more than 10 minutes late you are required to contact the employer as soon as possible but at the
First let me report about situation A in which employee A had a leave of absence for 11 weeks to be at home with his spouse who just gave birth to premature twins. Well, it is shown that he wanted to return to work with the same position and he also had a request for pay while he was on leave. In this situation it is found that he has a right by the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 to have a leave of absence from employment for up to 12 weeks each year for situations such as childbirth, adoption, or medical emergencies for himself or his family regardless of sex, that is, this act applies to both men and women; but the down side is that it is only an unpaid leave of absence that he is entitled to. So in this situation A employee A is entitled,
Because of unfair labor practices in the workplace and because of prompting from supporters of family rights, former President Bill Clinton signed FMLA into law in 1993. According to the FMLA act employers allow their employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave in any 12-month period without losing their job. The leave must be taken for covered reasons such as adoption or birth of a new baby, serious illness of the employee, or serious illness of a member of the employee's immediate family. Immediate family includes the employee's spouse, child, or parent. Under the FMLA, an employer must either retain the employee's job, or provide another position that has the same responsibilities and pay.
