Taking Time Off
This chart highlights the state laws related to taking time off from work (for caregivers and individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions), including family and medical leave, medical certification forms, paid sick leave, and paid family, medical, and general leave. Check back often, as this chart is updated frequently.
In some cases, there may be county, city, or other local laws related to taking time off. Sometimes these laws exist even if a state does not have a statewide law. There may also be additional state laws that apply to your situation. Information about these types of laws may be found by visiting our Resources by Location page and selecting your state.
