Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
Basic Leave Entitlement:
FMLA requires employers to provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave to Eligible Employees for the following reasons:
Military Family Leave Entitlement:
Eligible employees with a spouse, son, daughter, or parent on active duty or call for active duty status in the National Guard or Reserves in support of a contingency operation may use their 12-week leave entitlement to address certain qualifying exigencies. Qualifying exigencies may include attending certain military events, arranging for alternative childcare, addressing certain financial and legal arrangements, attending certain counseling sessions, and attending post-deployment reintegration briefings.
FMLA also includes a special leave entitlement that permits eligible employees to take up to 26 weeks of leave to care for a covered servicemember during a single 12-month period. A covered servicemember is a current member of the Armed Forces, including a member of the National Guard or Reserves, who has a serious illness or injury incurred in the line of duty on active duty that may render the servicemember medically unfit to perform his or her duties for which the servicemember is undergoing medical treatment, recuperation, or therapy; or is in outpatient status; or is on the temporary disability retired list.
Employees are eligible if they have worked for a covered employer for at least one year and for 1250 hours over the previous 12 months.
