What is a Family Care Leave?
A Family Care Leave is covered under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). A Family Care Leave provides an employee time off to care for their spouse, child, or parent, with a serious health condition.
If you are represented by the UAW, you may have additional non-FMLA Family Care Leave rights under contractual provisions. For more information, please refer to the "What are the non-FMLA Family Care Leave provisions for UAW employees?" answer.
