  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

    The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides certain employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave per year. It also requires that their group health benefits be maintained during the leave. FMLA is designed to help employees balance their work and family responsibilities by allowing them to take reasonable unpaid leave for certain family and medical reasons. It also seeks to accommodate the legitimate interests of employers and promote equal employment opportunity for men and women. This web page contains information and links to: (1) laws and regulations, (2) facts sheets, (3) compliance guides for employers, (4) answers to common questions about the FMLA, and much more.
