NH FMLA – Employees who are eligible to take family and medical leave may be entitled to take as much as twelve (12) weeks of leave. The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal employment law that allows eligible employees to take up to twelve (12) weeks of unpaid leave from their jobs for the following situations:
- Your own serious health condition
- Your child, parent or spouse’s serious health condition
- The birth or care of a newborn or adopted child
There are many requirements that have to be met in order to take family and medical leave. Unfortunately, once an employee utilizes their rights to take temporary leave from their job, employers may view them as risks for missing more time from work or costing more in health costs. The FMLA protects you against retaliation for taking leave or asking for leave.
