The Family and Medical Leave Act permits private-sector employees, including part- time people who work a minimum of 1,250 hours in excess of a year to take 12 weeks of unpaid leave yearly.

The United States Department of Labor helps impose this act. This act does not relate to companies, which have 50 or fewer employees (Cascio, 2013, p. 91).
Organizations have the accountability to make available to employees the essential information on the Family and Medical Leave Act.
