FMLA is a federal law for job protection, however employers may have additional options, too - I second your suggestion to research and know your HR policies. I was also entitled to 6 months off from my job, however my employer let me know they weren’t required to bring me back to my previous position after FMLA expired at 12 weeks. It’s why I worked so hard to get back within that 12-week timeframe, because I enjoyed my job and didn’t want to be bumped somewhere else. It’s just worth noting that here, for anyone else who comes along later.
