The Wisconsin and federal Family and Medical Leave Acts (W/FMLA) grant eligible employees the right to job-protected leave due to the serious illness of an employee or employee’s family member and the birth, adoption or placement of a child. The FMLA also provides for a job-protected leave due to a qualifying exigency that results when a family member is a current servicemember or covered veteran who is seriously ill or injured and requires care.
