Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, as amended

Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, as amended, administered by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), Employment Standards Administration, Wage and Hour Division.

The website of the DOL, which administers the U.S. Family and Medical Leave Act, provides comprehensive information on this law. It provides that all “covered employers” (basically those employing 50 or more employees) must provide all of their “eligible employees” (basically those who have been employed there at least 12 months and worked 1,250 hours during those 12 months) with the right to take up to 12 workweeks of unpaid leave during any 12 month period “to care for an immediate family member (spouse, child, or parent) with a serious health condition” and for certain other reasons. As a caregiver, you may be entitled to unpaid leave from your employment under the Family and Medical Leave Act to care for your ill elderly loved one.
