What Is The Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA)?
The Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA) applies to employers who employ 50 or more employees and public agencies. Covered employers are required to provide eligible employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave each year for:
|The birth of a child.|
|The placement of an adopted or foster child.|
|To care for a child, spouse, or parent with a serious health condition.|
|For the employee’s own serious health condition.|
The FMLA also requires covered employers to continue health benefits coverage during the leave. After completion of the leave, the employee must be restored to the same or equivalent position.
