FMLA: Key Employee Notification

Aug 12, 2014

Employee name: __________________________________________

Department: ______________________________________________

Position: _________________________________________________

Immediate supervisor: ______________________________________

On ___________________________, you requested FMLA leave. At that time we discussed with you that you were considered a key employee as defined by the FMLA. (The FMLA defines a key employee as salaried FMLA-eligible employee who is among the highest paid 10 percent of all the employees employed by the employer within 75 miles of the employee's worksite. The law gives an employer the option of declining reinstatement to an employee because of his/her status as a key employee if such reinstatement would cause the employer substantial and grievous economic injury to its operations.)

This notice is to inform you that after careful review, we have determined that reinstating you would indeed result in substantial and grievous economic injury to our operations.

Please contact me when convenient to discuss other options that may be available.
