Family Medical Leave
The primary law protecting an employee’s right to care for loved ones is the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Some states offer additional family and medical leave rights, such as leave to care for a domestic partner or extended family.
Under the Family and Medical Leave Act, a qualifying employee may take leave to care for a spouse, parent, or child. A child under the Family and Medical Leave Act includes adopted children. Family and medical leave, however, is not available for a same-sex partner. The Family and Medical Leave Act does not include the right to take leave to care for siblings, grandparents or other extended family. If your situation is not covered under the Family and Medical Leave Act, you may still be covered under the law of your state. Some states offer additional family and medical leave rights, such as leave to care for a domestic partner or extended family.
Some employees have the right to take family and medical leave if members of their family become sick. The Law Office of Rob Wiley, P.C. represents individuals who have been denied the right to take family and medical leave to help a sick family member, or have been retaliated against for taking family and medical leave.
