My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Nevada, more specifically the county of Eureka. I guess my first question is this. Does the FMLA law created by the government all reaching or can each state and their counties modify it to their wishes?
The main question i have follows this scenario. My wife works for a school district and the school she works at is 71 miles as the crow flies from the district headquarters. They sent my wife an email saying any employee from that school is not eligble for FMLA because they are "more that 50 miles away from the main attendance area". Is that right? All the info on FMLA that i found said it was up to 75miles and do those miles have to follow a road, or is it as the crow flies?
