Family and Medical Leave

In 1993. Congress passed the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) which permitted most employees to receive twelve (12) work weeks of unpaid leave during any twelve (12) month period. The reasons for the leave would be:

  • The birth of a son or daughter to the employee
  • The placement of a son or daughter with the employee for adoption or foster care
  • The care of a family member who had a serious health condition such as a husband or wife, son or daughter, or parent
  • A serious health condition of the employee that makes the employee unable to perform the essential functions of their position.
  • The worker can also use the twelve (12) weeks of FMLA Leave intermittently.

    After the leave is taken, the worker is protected insofar as they may return to the same position or an equivalent position with equivalent benefits and status. During the period of leave, the employer must maintain health benefits for the employee.

    In order to be eligible for the medical leave, the employee must provide notice of their desires to take Family and Medical Leave not less than thirty (30) days before leave is to begin or in emergencies, as soon as is possible. The employer may request medical certification for a Family Medical Leave.
