It’s the Law: The Family Law and Medical Leave Act

By Perry A. Zirkel Principal, January/February 2015 The FMLA entitles eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons, with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave. The act and its regulations also include special rules for K-12 school employment, including restrictions on intermittent or reduced-schedule leave and return from leave near the conclusion of an academic semester for instructional employees.
