Family And Medical Leave Act of 1993

In 1993 Congress passed the Family and Medical Leave Act providing workers with certain protections in order to balance family obligations and medical needs with their employment obligations.  These protections allow employees:

   1.  Twelve weeks of leave per year for specific reasons such as:
      A.  Caring for a newborn child
      B.  Caring for an ill family member
      C.  Handling an adoption procedure

   2.  Leave when physically unable to perform ones job

   3.  Upon return to work the employee is restored to the same position or, if the position is no longer available, a position providing equal pay, benefits and level.

   4.  Employee benefits protection while on leave and after returning from leave.

The Family and Medical Leave Act generally allows employees to take extended unpaid leaves of absence from work to take care of family illness or other issues without fear of losing their job or being reduced in pay, benefits or level upon return.  The law only applies to larger employers with 50 or more employees and to employees of federal and state government employees.  Other restrictions also apply to applicable employees such as time on the job.
