An employee who was on unpaid FMLA leave and who does not return to work for at least 30 days at the expiration of that leave is liable for the employer's share of health insurance premiums and any part of the employee's share that was paid by the employer.(38) However, an employee who does not return to work because of the "continuation, recurrence, or onset of a serious health condition which would entitle the employee to leave under FMLA" or for circumstances beyond the employee's control, cannot be held liable for the insurance premiums.(39) Where recovery of premiums is permitted, the employer is entitled to set off the amount against any final pay or monetary benefit to which the employee would otherwise be entitled.
