Question: Does the Family Medical Leave Act cover taking time off for an in-law that needs help for medical care?
Answer: The following is provided for general information only. To find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly. The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) allows for a covered employee to take time off to care for a spouse, child or parent who has a serious health condition. The Act does not explicitly state that care for in-laws is covered. Workers should also be aware that not every employer must offer FMLA coverage, and only certain employees are covered. For more information visit the US Department of Labor's FMLA website.
