Over the past few months, I’ve been asked by clients whether foreign nationals who are in the United States on work visas are eligible for FMLA leave.
Doris worked for the Chipotle restaurant chain. And she was pregnant.
With today’s publication of the final guidance and regulations implementing the “Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces” Executive Order (also known as the “Blacklisting” or “Bad Actors” Executive Order), mistakes that violate the FMLA or ADA (along with many other employment laws) could block an employer from lucrative federal contracts or subcontracts.
In general, the Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”) provides that eligible employees may take twelve weeks of unpaid leave in a twelve-month period for the serious health condition of the employee, the employee’s spouse, the employee’s parents or the employee’s children.
The loss of a child is never easy. Effective July 29, 2016, Illinois employers with 50 or more employees must provide eligible employees with up to 10 days of unpaid child bereavement leave following the death of a child.
