Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Advisor was developed by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division to help employees and employers understand their rights and responsibilities under the FMLA. The FMLA Advisor can help identify which employers are covered by the law, which employees are eligible for FMLA leave, what entitlements and benefits are provided under the law, and in what situations FMLA leave may be used. The FMLA Advisor is intended to provide general guidance. If after using the Advisor you need further assistance, please contact the Wage and Hour Division office nearest you.
