The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) allows one to take medical leave for a serious health condition, or to care for a family member with a serious health condition. There are other benefits too, but that is the main point of the act.
There are two important rigths protected by the act. Here they are:
First, you have the rigth to the entitlements in the act. You can take medical leave under the act.
Second, you have the right to be free of relatiation for the fact that you took leave or otherwise enforced your rights under the act. This means your employer can't fire you for taking leave.
