In 1993, the Family Medical Leave Act was passed. As a result, employees who have worked a minimum of 1 year, working at least 1,250 hours within that year, must be granted up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave in the event of a serious health concern, care for immediate family member, or care for a newborn/newly adopted child. Private companies are required to have a minimum of 50 employees for the act to apply to the company. Public/education agencies or companies must provide the 12 weeks of leave, regardless of the amount of total employees.
