The Department of Labor administers the FMLA only with respect to employees employed in the United States, including the District of Columbia and any territory or possession of the United States. Therefore, employees stationed full time overseas in a foreign country would not be eligible for the benefits of the FMLA while working overseas. This is true even if even if they are there only on one and two year employment contracts.
