16% Use Family Leave in 2012

Associated Press (02/07/13) Sam Hananel

A government report shows that last year 16% of eligible workers took time off under the Family and Medical Leave Act to recover from an illness or care for a child. Since the law went into effect in 1993, workers have taken leave over 100 million times. Fifty-seven percent went on leave for sickness, 22% for pregnancy or child care, and 19% to care for a sick family member. The U.S. Department of Labor recently expanded the law to include military families and airline workers.
