In addition to federal laws like the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), employers may need to provide time off to employees under state laws. For example, many states have laws that provide time off for pregnancy, to bond with a new child, to deal with the effects of domestic violence, and to attend a child’s school activities. Many states also require employers to provide leave for certain civic responsibilities, such as serving in the state military, voting, and serving on a jury. To find out what leave you’re entitled to, select your state from the list below.
