Family and Medical Leave Act
- (FMLA)A federal law that requires employers to provide an employee with 12 weeks of unpaid leave over the course of a year for the birth or adoption of a child, family health needs, or personal illness. Employees must be allowed to return to the same or a similar position to the one held before taking leave. The Act applies only to employers with 50 or more employees, so about half the workforce is not covered by it.
