Answer to The FMLA provides longer service employees of larger employers the right to take up to 12 weeks from work without losing their job. Is that 12 weeks a year or 12 weeks for the rest of your life????

It is 12 weeks per year, either per calendar year or on a rolling basis. The employer can choose either one, but if it does not specify which method it is using then you are entitled to take advantage of the method that is most advantageous to you.

Answer to I recently resigned from a company in illinois, after 4 years of service, I had 40 hours of unused accrued vacation pay (which i had to make several phone calls to get)...just found out today that they are paying me the 40 hours as severance pay...(higher

Well, they have to pay you any accrued, earned vacation upon termination. If they call it "severance pay," it doesn't really make a difference, unless they are making you sign a release or something else to get it. You shouldn't have to sign any releases in order to get your final paycheck, including unused vacation. For further info check out the Illinois Department of Labor website, where you can get information about filing a charge. Good luck -
