Timing is Everything for FMLA Eligibility

Tuesday, 13 August 2013 08:51


A U.S. District Court in Tennessee has determined an employee’s eligibility for leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”) is determined from the date the employee provides notice of the need for leave, not from the date the intended leave is scheduled to begin.  Accordingly, if an employee provides notice prior to being employed for an entire year of an intent to take leave after reaching the year of employment, the FMLA does not require the employer to grant the requested leave.

Friday, 19 July 2013 10:15


A U.S. District Court in New York has determined the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (“CFAA”) does not address claims related to employee misuse of business information obtained from a computer to which the employee properly had access. The court analyzed both broad and narrow interpretations of the statute, but concluded the CFAA should be applied narrowly. The court did not extend the CFAA to the removal of a company’s information by an employee through use of a flash memory drive on computer servers in an effort to surreptitiously rip information from the drives.
