What is FMLA?

Posted by:

The Family and Medical Leave Act or FMLA is a federal law that entitles eligible employees to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified reasons. These reasons could be for the employee’s own serious health condition or because the employee needs to care for a parent, spouse, or child with a serious health condition. FMLA leave may be taken all at once, or may be taken intermittently as the medical condition requires.
