Sick days

Some employees are entitled under the Family Medical Leave Act to up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave each year for medical reasons. To be eligible employees have to have been with their employer for at least 12 months, have worked at least 1,250 hours over the course of the previous year, and be working for a company with at least 50 employees within 75 miles of their work location. Some states have further legislation relating to sick leave that goes beyond these federal requirements.

Maternity leave

The Family and Medical Leave Act stipulates that mothers of newborn children are entitled to 12 weeks of unpaid leave if they are working for a company with 50+ employees. Some states have extended that right to women working for smaller companies. However, most mothers working for smaller companies have no right to paid or unpaid maternity leave.

Paternity leave

In the majority of states, there is no legal requirement to offer paid paternity leave.

Termination

Employers terminating an employee’s contract must follow relevant federal, state, and city laws regarding such issues as notice and processing final pay.

There are no federal requirements to offer severance pay.
