Family and Medical Leave Inclusion Act

“The Family and Medical Leave Act, FMLA for short, provided a lot of sorely needed benefits to employees that had to miss work to care for families. The FMLA currently allows 12 weeks of paid time off work to care for a new baby, spouses, minor children (under 18), and parents.

Family and Medical Leave Inclusion Act

Since ‘the family’ has changed and new situations have continued to arise that challenge families, the existing law doesn’t cover the new types of families, including same-sex partnerships, children of domestic partners, as well as adding in considerations for siblings and grandparents.

Changes in the law have been proposed to include these new factors, which will again help this revolutionary law to cover all families going forward.”
