  2. 2. Introduction  The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) allows individuals to take unpaid leave from work and maintain their health benefits without running the risk of losing their jobs. Eligible employees can take up to 12, or in some cases up to 26, workweeks off within a 12-month period, according to certain stipulations.
  3. 3. Twelve workweeks per year can be taken for the following reasons: 1. The birth of a child and subsequent care within one year of birth. 2. The placement of a child into the employee’s care, whether through adoption or foster care. 3. The care of a child, parent, or spouse with a serious medical condition. 4. The care of the employee suffering from a condition that renders him or her unable to work. 5. An emergency situation that arises when the employee’s spouse or a member of the immediate family is on covered active military duty.
  4. 4. Conclusion  Twenty-six workweeks per year can be claimed for military caregiver leave, in which the employee needs to care for a spouse, a member of the immediate family, or the next of kin who is in covered service and has been seriously injured. To learn more about the FMLA and employees’ rights, get in touch with an employment law attorney.
