St. Louis Family & Medical Leave Practice
In certain situations, employees are legally permitted to take an unpaid leave of absence from work. Specifically, certain employers are required to give employees unpaid time off because of the birth or adoption of a child, to care for a spouse, child, or parent who has a serious health condition, because of a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform his or her job, or because of the foreign military deployment of an employee’s spouse, child, or parent. Employers cannot fire you or otherwise retaliate against you for asking for this time off or for taking it.
