Question of the Week - FMLA and COBRA

Posted by BAS - 16 November, 2023


Q.- We have an employee going on FMLA leave. Do we give her a COBRA notice when she takes her leave?

A.- Under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) rules, an employer must continue an employee’s health coverage when they are taking FMLA leave. Therefore, there is not a loss of coverage when the leave begins. If the employee does not return to work at the end of the leave, coverage may be canceled and that the COBRA qualifying event would occur at that time.
