FYI: FMLA: Family Emergency Medical Leave Act


FMLA is a right! The Family Medical Leave Act provides for unpaid, job-protected leave to care for your own serious health condition, or because you need to care for your parent, spouse, or child with a serious health condition. Sick, vacation, or personal days can be used in concurrence with FMLA to ensure that you receive pay while on FMLA. Leave may be taken all at once or may be taken intermittently as the medical condition requires. For more information about FMLA, visit the following link:
