Question: My company has 19 or 20 employees - am I eligible for FMLA? I'm currently on a company group health plan - am I eligible for COBRA coverage? If not to either question, do I have any options?

Answer: According to the Department of Labor, generally an employer is not required to offer FMLA if they have less than 50  employees.  Read page 2 of this DOL document:  https://www.dol.gov/whd/fmla/employeeguide.pdf

You may be elligible for COBRA, but you may want to consult your company's HR.  https://www.dol.gov/ebsa/faqs/faq-consumer-cobra.html
