FMLA Advisor

The FMLA Advisor is designed to help employers understand their rights and responsibilities under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Under the law, eligible employees of covered employers are entitled to take unpaid, job-protected leave for:

  • The birth of a child and to care for the newborn child;
  • The placement of a child for adoption or foster care and to care for the newly placed child;
  • Care for a family member with a serious health condition;
  • The employee's own serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the functions of his or her job; and
  • Certain military-related reasons.

The FMLA Advisor can assist you in understanding:

  • Which employers are required to provide FMLA leave;
  • Which employees are eligible to take FMLA leave;
  • Valid reasons for leave;
  • Employer and employee notice requirements; and
  • Other responsibilities under the law.

Use of this tool does not replace the advice of a qualified attorney or other professional advisor. If you need further compliance assistance, you should contact a local office of the U.S. Wage and Hour Division or a knowledgeable employment law attorney. Please be advised that many states also have laws relating to family and medical leave which may provide greater protection to employees than the federal FMLA.
