When to Use

A covered Rhode Island employer may use this form to respond to employees' family and medical leave requests. The employer must inform the employee whether the request has been approved or denied under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or the Rhode Island Parental and Family Medical Leave Act (RIPFMLA) and the reason for the denial, if applicable.

  • The FMLA covers employers that employ 50 or more employees in 20 or more workweeks in the current or preceding calendar year that are engaged in commerce or in any industry or activity affecting commerce.
  • The RIPFMLA covers employers that employ 50 or more full-time employees.
