All Schools Must Post FMLA Poster

Under the FMLA, all K-12 educational institutions are covered by the law and the regulations as "local education agencies" even if they do not employ 50 employees. All elementary and secondary schools are required to post the FMLA notice. Failure to post this notice may result in the assessment of a civil penalty of $100 for each separate offense. The newest FMLA poster may be obtained for free at

If your school has less than 50 employees, it is recommended that the following additional notice be published and posted or distributed to employees on an 8½-by-11-inch sheet with legible bold-faced print:

This school is a "covered employer" under the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993. However, because the school does not employ 50 or more people, no employee is eligible for leave under the provisions of the act. The school has its own policies for leave, and those shall continue to apply subject to any changes made from time to time.

LLU 19.3
