  • To care for the employee's child after birth, or placement for adoption or foster care;
  • To care for the employee's spouse, son or daughter, or parent, who has a serious health condition; or
  • For a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the employee's job.

For Military Family Leave Entitlements please refer to the applicable section of the Statewide Policy on FMLA.
