Accommodation and Compliance: Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

On This Page


The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) entitles eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if they had not taken leave.

The FMLA is designed to help employees balance their work and family responsibilities by taking reasonable unpaid leave for certain family and medical reasons. It also seeks to accommodate the legitimate interests of employers and promotes equal employment opportunity for men and women.

For general FMLA inquiries, contact DOL/Wage and Hour information and referral line: 866-4-uswage (866-487-9243).
