Family Medical Leave Act
The Family Medical Leave Act (also known as the FMLA) was enacted to strike a balance between work and home. It allows qualified employees up to 12 weeks leave to handle serious family issues like sickness, birth or adoption of a child, or to take care of a sick family member. The Family Medical Leave Act is a difficult Act to follow and understand and many employers violate it by refusing to permit employees to take time off, terminating or demoting employees who request leave, or failing to hold an employee's job open until the employee returns.If It's Not Right, You Have to Fight!
