Family & Medical Leave

Welcome to FindLaw's Family and Medical Leave section. Here you will find information on federal and state laws that address when and how an employee can take time off from work to deal with their own health issue or that of a family member. Federally, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides unpaid leave for qualifying employees. FMLA only applies to employers with at least 50 employees, but some states have additional protections, including limited paid leave or coverage of smaller employers.
