Ask employer for FMLA for surgery. Due to a work obligation, I ask my employer which date would be best for surgery and FMLA by e-mail (in19 days or 33 days). Employer told me verbally , surgery in 19 days in which I scheduled. I have not received anything regarding FMLA in writing from my employer (ELIGIBILITY AND RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES NOTICE REQUIREMENTS). I did email what the surgery was for, expected time of recovery and request for FMLA. Can I be fired or denied rights associated with FMLA since my employer choose the 19 days notice? Am I exempt from receiving a 5 business day eligibility, rights and responsibility notice? I've been employed for 6 years and work about 50 hours a week (called in 2x in 6 years) Employer has 250 employees.
