State Family and Medical Leave Laws

The federal Family and Medical Leave Act generally applies to employers of 50 or more employees.  However, several states provide employees of smaller employers with similar family and medical leave rights as well.  These state laws also frequently provide different grounds for leave than the FMLA does. Generally, the FMLA does not supersede a state or locality’s provisions if those provisions provide greater family or medical leave rights than those provided by FMLA.  Additionally, a handful of states provide disability benefits for employees that may arise out of situations simultaneously covered by State or FMLA leave, such as pregnancy.  To check on your state’s family and medical leave and disability benefits laws, please visit the State Employment Laws section.
