Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

FMLA provides eligible employees upt to 12 weeks of unpaid leave during a 12-month rolling for the following reasons:

1. For the birth of or to care for a child within the first 12 months after birth; 
2. For placement of a child with the employee for adoption or foster care within the 
first 12 months of placement; 
3. To care for an immediate family member (spouse, child, or parent) who has a 
serious health condition; 
4. For a serious health condition, as defined in the applicable federal and state 
regulations, that make the employee unable to perform the functions of his/her 
position; or 
5. For leave due to call to active duty as defined in FMLA due to a spouse, son, 
daughter or parent being on active duty or having been notified of an impending 
call or order to active duty of all active duty service members. Leave may be 
used for a “qualifying exigency” arising out of the service member’s call to active 
duty or deployment.
