State Leave Laws
Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors | Last reviewed June 20, 2016
A number of states have added their own protections for employees who are required to take time off from work for medical or family reasons, including military leave. It's important to note that these provisions are either equal to, or greater than, those provided by the federal Family and Medical Leave Act. Even with the FMLA as the base, each state can vary greatly with respect to leave laws. Below you can find information on state paid sick leave laws, family leave provisions, and additional information related to the provision of time off for medical reasons.More
