Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) (Title 29, Chapter 28)

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) entitles eligible employees to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage. The purpose of the Act is to balance the demands of the workplace with family needs. By granting leave for reasons such as personal illness, pregnancy, or adoption, the Act promotes economic stability for those with pressing medical or family needs.
