The federal government recently updated FMLA regulations to incorporate new military family leave entitlements enacted under the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2008.

FMLA Non-Military
Care for Yourself

This FMLA leave form should be completed when you have or think you have a qualifying condition. Some examples of qualifying conditions are: pregnancy, surgery, cancer or diabetes.

Leave can be taken intermittently or continuously.

Care for a Family Member

This FMLA leave should be used when a family member has a qualifying condition. Some examples of qualifying conditions are: where a parent needs assistance.

Leave can be taken intermittently or continuously.


FMLA Exigency & Military Caregiver
Exigency Leave

This type of leave should be used for any qualifying exigency arising out of the fact that a covered military member is on active duty or call to active duty status.

Exigency Leave will also permit eligible employees who are family members of a covered military member to take FMLA leave to address the most common issues that arise when a covered military member is deployed, such as attending military-sponsored functions, making appropriate financial and legal arrangements, and arranging for alternative childcare.

Leave can be taken intermittently or continuously.

Military Caregiver Leave

This leave may be taken by an eligible employee to care for a covered servicemember with a serious injury or illness.

A “covered servicemember” is a current member of the Armed Forces, including a member of the National Guard or Reserves, who is undergoing medical treatment, recuperation, or therapy, is otherwise in outpatient status, or is otherwise on the temporary disability retired list, for a serious injury or illness incurred in the line of duty on active duty.

Leave can be taken intermittently or continuously.
