Full Definition of Family And Medical Leave Act


A US ederal law that requires employers to provide an employee with 12 weeks of unpaid leave during a year’s time for the birth or adoption of a child, family health needs or personal illness.

There are exceptions to the FMLA: the most notable is that only employers with 50 or more employees are covered–about half the workforce.
