Family and Medical Leave

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides an entitlement of up to 12 weeks of job-protected, unpaid leave during any 12-month period to eligible, covered employees.

Eligible Employees

Only eligible employees are entitled to take FMLA leave. An eligible employee is one who:

  1. Works for a covered employer;
  2. Has worked for the employer for at least 12 months;
  3. Has at least 1,250 hours of service for the employer during the 12 month period immediately preceding the leave*; and
  4. Works at a location where the employer has at least 50 employees within 75 miles.


Leave Entitlement

Eligible employees may take up to 12 workweeks of leave in a 12-month period for one or more of the following reasons:

  1. The birth of a son or daughter or placement of a son or daughter with the employee for adoption or foster care;
  2. To care for a spouse, son, daughter, or parent who has a serious health condition;
  3. For a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the essential functions of his or her job; or
  4. For any qualifying exigency arising out of the fact that a spouse, son, daughter, or parent is a military member on covered active duty or call to covered active duty status.
