Family and Medical Leave

You shouldn’t have to decide between your family’s health and your job. The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) helps employees deal with personal and family health care issues.

The FMLA provides for leave to deal with issues such as:

  • Pregnancy
  • Childbirth
  • Adoption
  • Serious illness of children or other family members
  • Care for veteran family members
  • Serious injury or illness of the employee

The FMLA protects your right to return to work after leave without a decrease in pay or benefits.

Your employer cannot deny you the leave you deserve or punish you for exercising your right to FMLA leave. You are protected against demotion or termination and other more subtle forms of retaliation.
