FMLA - 12 month employment period
I read an article regarding case O'Connor v. Busch's Inc. stating that the 12 month employment period can span 20 years. The courts found in favor of the employee even though they had not recently worked for a consecutive 12 months. We rehire employees on a regular basis. I have an employee who is out due to an illness. He was rehired in 2010, but worked for us for a few months in 2009 too. Do I need to total all his hours from 2009 and 2010 till present time to see if he meets the 1250 hour requirements for FMLA?
