Family Medical Leave
Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
The federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) entitles eligible employees to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave in a 12-month period for specified family and medical reasons. The FMLA allows eligible employees to take up to 12 weeks of job-protected leave in the applicable 12-month period for any qualifying situation arising out of the fact that a covered military member is on active duty, or has been notified of an impending call or order to active duty. FMLA allows eligible employees to take up to 26 weeks of job-protected leave in a single 12-month period to care for a wounded service member with a serious injury or illness.
