Family & Medical Leave Act
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) allows employees to balance their work and family life by taking reasonable unpaid leave for certain family and medical reasons. The FMLA seeks to accomplish these purposes by recognizing the family and health needs of the employee and balancing that against the legitimate business needs of employers.
American Water complies with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and assures fair and consistent treatment of employees, as well as compliance with state requirements. Additional FMLA information can be found on the Department of Labor's website.
