When an Employee is Protected by the Family and Medical Leave Act


Not only are you protected under the law should you suffer a workrelated injury, but under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), you may be able to take a leave from work should other situations arise.

These situations, namely, are for the birth and care of the employee’s newborn child; for placement with the employee of a child for adoption or foster care; to care for an immediate family member with a serious health condition; or to take medical leave when the employee is unable to work because of a serious health condition.

Please see full article below for more information.
