Family Medical Leave Act

questions & answers

Question: Do I qualify for FMLA if I am struggling with a child custody in another county and I need to be out of work for an extended time?

Answer:

If you are a "covered employee" under the FMLA, you can take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave in any 12 month period for the following three reasons:

  • To recover from your own serious health condition that prevents you from performing the functions of your job.
  • To care for a child, spouse, or parent with a serious health condition;
  • To give birth or adopt a child. Both mothers and fathers can take leave for the birth, adoption, and care of a new child (29 U.S.C. 2612(a)(1));
