  • Incapacity due to:
    • Pregnancy, prenatal medical care, or childbirth
    • A serious health condition
    • The serious health condition of a son or daughter, spouse, domestic partner (same-sex or opposite-sex), or parent
  • Bonding with a newborn, adopted or foster-care child in accordance with state and federal law in effect at the time of the leave

FMLA also provides Military Family Leave to eligible employees with a spouse, son or daughter, or parent on active duty or called to active duty.
