Family Medical Leave Act

The Family and Medial Leave Act (FMLA) is a benefit that allows qualified employees to take up to twelve weeks of leave per fiscal year for his or her own personal illness, for the birth or adoption of a child, or to care for a family member. Employees may also take FMLA leave to take care of personal and family matters in the event a spouse or another eligible family member is called to active duty in the Armed Forces.
