Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA):

FMLA provides up to 12 workweeks of job-protected leave in a 12-month rolling backward period for any of the following:
• To care for your child after birth or placement of a child for adoption or foster care;
• To care for a spouse, parent, or dependent child with a serious health condition;
• For a serious health condition that makes you unable to do the essential functions of your job.

You are eligible for FMLA leave if you have at least 12 months of service and have worked a minimum of 1,250 hours over the previous 12 months. (See your manager for more details.) Certain kinds of leave, such as vacation or sick leave, may be substituted for unpaid leave, in accordance with Company policy. This leave may be taken on an intermittent basis or through a reduced schedule, if necessary and appropriate. The FMLA provides minimum standards for family and medical leave.  You may be entitled to additional leave under state law.
