The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) allows employees to take 12 weeks of leave for their own or a family member’s serious health condition and up to 26 weeks for military caregiver leave. The leave can be taken in one block, over several stretches of time or intermittently. To take intermittent leave, the employee need only provide a certification that there is a medical need for such leave.
