Family Medical Leave Act on Workday

Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

Basic Leave Entitlement: FMLA requires covered employers to provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid job protection leave to eligible employees for the following reasons:  

  • For incapacity due to pregnancy, prenatal medical care, or child birth;
  • To care for the employee’s child after birth, or placement for adoption or foster care;
  • To care for the employee’s spouse, son or daughter, or parent, who has a serious health condition; or
  • For a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the employee's job

Military Family Leave Entitlements: Eligible employees with a spouse, son, daughter, or parent is on active duty or call to active duty status may use their 12-week leave entitlement to address certain qualifying exigencies. Qualifying exigencies may include attending certain military events, arranging for alternative childcare, addressing certain financial and legal arrangements, attending certain counseling sessions, and attending post-deployment reintegration briefings.
