Will I still receive a paycheck while on the Family Medical Leave Act?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Yakima, WA

I thought I would get paid 80% of my salary during the time, but now I've heard I don't get paid anything. Is that true?

    Answered . Your employer is not required to pay you for the time you take off under the FMLA. Some companies chose to pay their employees, but they do not have to. Here is some further information on the FMLA: http://www.dol.gov/whd/fmla/
