The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (Public Law 103-3, enacted February 5, 1993) was one of the first major new laws enacted by United States President Bill Clinton in his first term, fulfilling a campaign promise. The law recognizes the growing needs of balancing family and work obligations and promises numerous protections to workers. Some of these protections include:

Twelve (12) workweeks of leave per twelve (12) months for various reasons such as:

  • Caring for a newborn child
  • Handling adoption issues
  • Caring for a sick child or family member
  • Being physically unable to perform the worker’s job

Protection of employee benefits even while on leave. An employer must return all rights that the employee received before going on leave.Protection of the employee to not have their rights under the Leave Act taken away by an employer.

Generally, the Act ensures that all workers are able to take extended leaves of absence from work to handle family issues or illness without fear of being terminated from their jobs by their employers or being forced into a lower job upon their return.

The Family Medical Leave Act states that an employee should be granted leave for his/her own serious ill health, a family members serious health, to care for a newborn, look after or an adopted child, and other serious issues. If  Family Medical Leave Act applies to your situation, you must assert your rights to get justice. In case you need leaves for genuine reasons and are not provided with security of job by your employer, seek help of a legal expert.
