The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) entitles an employee to take up to 12 work weeks of job-protected, unpaid leave, or substitute appropriate paid leave if the employee has earned or accrued it, per year to:
- Care for a newborn son or daughter
- Adopt or foster a child
- Care for a spouse, son, daughter, or parent with a serious medical condition
- Recover from your own serious health condition if interferes with your ability to perform at work
In addition, you may take job-protected leave for up to a total of 26 work-weeks per year to care for a covered servicemember with a serious injury or illness. In certain cases, FMLA leave may be taken at intervals rather than all at once. Or, you may work a part-time schedule.
The Wisconsin Family and Medical Leave Act (WFMLA) provides similar protections and entitlements to employees as the FMLA.
