My employer says the company does not participate in FMLA.

Customer Question

My employer says the company does not participate in FMLA. We do have the required 50 employees and the worker has been employed full time for over a year. The boss is trying to force her to quit. She needs FMLA asap for seriously ill spouse. Is there a legal reason the company can opt out of FMLA?

No, the FMLA is a federal law and any violation will subject the company to disability discrimination. Make sure you get these statements in writing, perhaps in a responsive email that the company elects not to follow federal law. I hope that helped.
