What can I get FMLA for?
FMLA extends typically to four areas. As our Atlanta FMLA lawyers can explain to you, the FMLA grants eligible employees paid leave for the birth and care of the employee's baby, for the placement of a new adopted child into the employee's nuclear family, to care for an immediate family member (parent, spouse, child) with a serious health condition, or to take personal leave when the employee is unable to work due to a serious health condition.

How do I know if I am eligible for FMLA coverage?
The requirements for qualification for FMLA coverage can be confusing and you should contact an experienced Atlanta FMLA lawyer to discuss your employment and let him determine whether you qualified for coverage or not. Typically, an employee must at least work for the employer for 12 months prior to requesting FMLA and the employer must have at least 50 employees. Other requirements exist and should be discussed with an Atlanta FMLA lawyer by contacting Brandon Hornsby, P.C. today.

What classifies as a serious health condition?
A serious health condition can be an illness, injury, impairment, or physical or mental condition which involves either some inpatient care (hospital stay) or continuing treatment by a health care provider which includes a period of incapacitation. The best thing do to if you believe you are qualified but were refused FMLA is to contact a good Atlanta FMLA lawyer who knows the intricacies of the FMLA and can help you determine whether or not you qualify, regardless of what your employer has told you.
