The employer must maintain the health plan on the same terms and conditions applicable to actively working employees. If active employees must contribute a portion of the premium, directly or through payroll deduction, employees on FMLA leave are likewise required to contribute the portion of the premium. However, if the employer pays the entire premium for actively working employees, the employer may not require persons on FMLA leave to pay. Non-health benefits are subject to the terms of the employer's policy or collective bargaining agreement or individual employment agreement, whichever is applicable.
