2021 Form WH 380 F— Certification for Health Care Provider for Family Member’s Serious Health Condition under Family and Medical Leave Act is an FMLA form used for requesting leave to take care of a family member.
If a member of your family member needs care due to a serious health condition whether it be an injury or an illness, you can request FMLA leave. However, just like any other reason for an FMLA leave, you must be eligible. The eligibility requirements for employees to go on FMLA leave is as follows.
You must be working for the same employer for at least 12 months prior to the FMLA leave.
You must have worked for at least 1,250 hours prior to the FMLA leave. This equals about 24 hours per week– meaning most part-time employees should be eligible.
You must not exceed the FMLA leave days you’re given. The maximum amount of time an employee can go on leave with FMLA is 12 weeks.
Other than these, your employer needs to have at least 50 employees within a 75-mile radius of the workplace. As long as all the conditions are met, there isn’t anything in your way to go on leave for up to 12 weeks under FMLA.
