In 1993, Congress recognized that there is inadequate job security for employees who have serious health conditions that prevent them from working for temporary periods. With this in mind, Congress enacted the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). The FMLA balances the demands of the workplace with the needs of families. In 1995, California adopted similar legislation, the California Family Rights Act (CFRA). Under the FMLA and the CFRA, an employee who has been employed for at least 1,250 hours of service during the preceding 12 months by an employer with at least 50 employees within 75 miles of the employee's work site is eligible for up to 12 weeks unpaid leave (60 eight hour work days) in a 12 month period for the

serious health condition of the employee, his child, parent or spouse.

Under these laws, an employer, or any other person, is prohibited from discriminating against, or discharging, an employee (or discriminating against a non-employee) for taking FMLA leave, or for opposing or complaining about violations of FMLA.
