Whether or not an employer is covered by the FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) depends on the number of employees it has. To be covered by the FMLA a private employer has to have at least 50 employees and they all have to be working within 75 miles of each other. So, the threshold number of employees for FMLA coverage is 50.
