Answer:

See our article titled The Family Medical Leave Act.

That article states: The FMLA does not protect all employees. Instead, it protects only covered employees. To be covered by the FMLA, you have to meet all of the three following requirements: You work for a company that has 50 or more employees within 75 miles of your workplace; and, You worked for your employer for at least one year before taking the FMLA leave; and You worked at least 1,250 hours in that year (about 25 hours per week) (29 U.S.C. 2611(2)).

You can also find information on the Family Medical Leave Act on the U.S. Department of Labor website.
