Leave Laws

Part of a manager's job is to implement an effective employee leave program, which requires a functional understanding of federal and state leave laws. While some employers offer paid vacation and sick days as employee benefits, certain types of unpaid leave are mandatory in accordance with state and federal employment laws. FindLaw's section on Leave Laws contains articles and resources to help you understand your legal obligations with respect to employee leave, such as time off for voting and jury duty. In this section you can also find articles about the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and military service and re-employment rights.
