Fact Sheet #28B: FMLA leave for birth, placement, bonding, or to care for a child with serious health conditions on the basis of an “in loco parentis’ relationship
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) entitles an eligible employee to take up to 12 workweeks of job-protected unpaid leave for the birth or placement of a son or daughter, to bond with a newborn or newly placed son or daughter, or to care for a son or daughter with a serious health condition. See 29 USC 2612(a)(1). This Fact Sheet provides guidance on an employee’s entitlement to FMLA leave to bond with or care for a child to whom the employee stands “in loco parentis.” You may also wish to review Fact Sheet #28C on FMLA leave to care for a parent on the basis of an in loco parentis relationship.
