In the employment law arena, employee leave is an increasingly common issue confronting businesses today. Two main federal statutes cover employee leave time. The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) allows covered employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave to deal with certain family issues. The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Act of 1994 (USERRA) governs the impact of leave for active military service on job security and employment benefits.
