I am a Office Worker
and I feel like I am not getting the leave I am entitled to.

You have the right to take unpaid leave.

You have the right to (eligible employees of covered employers) take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave. If you are eligible, you have:

  • Twelve workweeks of leave in a 12-month period for:
  • the birth of a child and to care for the newborn child within one year of birth
  • the placement with the employee of a child for adoption or foster care and to care for the newly placed child within one year of placement
  • to care for the employee’s spouse, child, or parent who has a serious health condition
  • a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the essential functions of his or her job
  • any qualifying exigency arising out of the fact that the employee’s spouse, son, daughter, or parent is a covered military member on “covered active duty; or
  • Twenty-six workweeks of leave during a single 12-month period to care for a covered servicemember with a serious injury or illness if the eligible employee is the servicemember’s spouse, son, daughter, parent, or next of kin (military caregiver leave).
