The Family and Medical Leave Act became law in 1995 to supplement the federal Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993. It allows public- and private-sector employees to leave their employment, without pay, for medical and family-related issues. These include pregnancy and parental leave for a child, bereavement and serious health conditions for self or family members.
