About FMLA

Overview

The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) is a United States federal law requiring larger employers to provide employees job-protected unpaid leave due to a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform his or her job, or to care for a sick family member, or to care for a new child (including by birth, adoption or foster care).  The FMLA is administered by the Wage and Hour Division of the Employment Standards Administration of the US Department of Labor.
