FMLA eligibility

Our headquarters in Cleveland, OH has over 50 employees which makes us eligible for FMLA. However, our satellites throughout the country only have 3-4 employees at each site. Would they be considered eligible for FMLA as well.

FMLA coverage of satellite offices

Your answer is in the federal regulation at 29 CFR 825.111. Here is a link to the Department of Labor's site:

You will probably find your answer there. If not, consult a reputable employment lawyer who represents businesses before you refuse FMLA leave to an employee. The cost of violating the law is far more than the cost of asking an attorney what the law is.

Best regards,
