    This will tell you if they broke the law.

    Family Leave of Absence Act

    Family Leave of Absence Actthumbnail FMLA addresses work-family demands.

    The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) was drafted by The National Partnership for Families and made law in 1993. The act addresses the reality that both parents are likely to work and that women are usually the family caretakers, forced to choose between job and family. The FMLA requires employers to provide leave for employees who must address family medical issues, ensuring that both parents can participate equally in family life and that women are less likely to face employment discrimination.

    FMLA Leave

    The FMLA requires that employees are given up to 12 work weeks of unpaid leave during a one-year period for specific medical or family issues such as birth and care of a child, adoption of a child or placement of a foster child, serious illness of an immediate family member or serious illness that renders the employee unable to work. Immediate family members are spouses, children, parents, and next-of-kin - there is no requirement that family members live together. Employees cannot be terminated during leave covered by the act.
    Eligible Employers

    The FMLA requires the participation of local and government agencies, the military, airline crews, schools and private employers that have 50 or more employees over a period of 20 or more work weeks.
    Eligible Employees

    Employees eligible for leave under the FMLA are those who have worked for at least 12 months with an employer of 50 or more employees in a 75-mile area; those whose work hours total a minimum of 1,250 during the previous year and those who are employed in the U.S. or its territories and possessions. Family members of armed forces personnel are also eligible for leave under the act.
