Summary of Employment Laws for Employees


Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

In 1993, the federal government passed the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). FMLA enables eligible employees to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave for certain family and medical events and allows them to return to their job or an equivalent position after the leave has expired.

This law was enacted because many employers had not been sensitive to work/family situations. Mott, on the other hand, has a long history of recognizing the importance of balancing work and family as evidenced by its liberal leave policies.
