Q. How does the recent amendment to the Illinois FamilyAct affect employers?
A. The Illinois Family Military Leave Act allows an eligible employee who is the spouse or parent of a person who is called to military service to take unpaid leave from work before his or her relative is deployed.
On July 30, Gov. Pat Quinn signed Senate Bill 3818, which expands eligibility under the Family Military Leave Act to adult children and grandparents in addition to spouses and parents.
Under the amended law, employers with 50 or more employees must provide up to 30 days of unpaid leave to the eligible employee. This amendment becomes effective on Jan. 1, 2011.
