The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and California Family Rights Act (CFRA) allows employees to take time up to 12 weeks off from work in a 12-month period for family or health-related reasons. These laws protect employees who have been working for an employer with 50 or more employees and have been working for at least a year.
