Employer's Poorly Drafted FMLA Policy Allows Employee to Advance FMLA Claim (That Should Have Never Seen the Light of Day)

The Road Commission's FMLA policy made absolutely no reference to the requirement that [an employee would be eligible only if he works at a location where the employer employs at least] 50 employees [who] work within 75 miles.... Because the Road Commission left out the third prong of what the court considered an 'unambiguous and unqualified' FMLA eligibility provision, a 'reasonable person in [Terry's] position could fairly have believed that he was protected by the FMLA.' "
