Floridian residents like you work hard every day at your jobs. However, there are some unavoidable situations in which it becomes temporarily impossible for you to continue working. This is where the Family and Medical Leave Act, or FMLA, comes into play. But just what is this act?
Findlaw explains everything you need to know about the FMLA. Essentially, this act guarantees employees up to 12 unpaid working weeks of leave per year, with no threat to their position within the company. Additionally, you're still able to maintain your healthcare benefits during this period, even if you won't be paid.
