Maintenance of Health Benefits During FMLA Leave

As mentioned in the Notice of Eligibility and Rights & Responsibilities, employers are required to maintain the health coverage of employees during the employee’s FMLA leave.  The employer must continue health benefits during any period of FMLA leave under the same terms and conditions as benefits for similarly situated employees not on leave.

When you distributed the Notice of Eligibility and Rights & Responsibilities, you should have provided a contact for employees taking leave to make arrangements to continue making any share of premium payments they are required to pay to maintain health benefits during the leave.
