How Soon After I Provide Notice of the Need for Leave Must My Employer Determine Whether I am eligible for FMLA Leave?

Absent extenuating circumstances, an employer must notify an employee of whether the employee is eligible to take FMLA leave (and, if not, at least one reason why the employee is ineligible) within five business days of the employee requesting leave or the employer learning that an employee’s leave may be for a FMLA-qualifying reason.
