The Family and Medical Leave Act requires covered employers to grant 12 to 26 weeks of leave to eligible employees for qualified medical and family reasons. These include to care for one’s own serious personal health conditions, to care for a covered family member with a serious health condition, for family military leave for a qualifying exigency, or to care for a seriously injured or ill servicemember or veteran. The FMLA also covers eligible employees after the birth, adoption, or foster care placement of a child within one year of the placement.
