Military Family Leave

The Family and Medical Leave Act was amended in 2008 to include special provisions for eligible family members of military personnel. The provisions include:

  • Exigency Leave, which results from a call to active duty of an employee’s family member, and
  • Caregiver Leave, which  allows up to 26 weeks of leave for those employees who are a spouse, son, daughter, parent, or next of kin to care for family members who are military service members with a serious injury.

A packet must be issued if an employee needs leave for the circumstances in this section.
