can i use fmla to care for my daughter when she has her baby
1 Answer from Attorneys
The FMLA and CFRA were established to allow eligible employees to take as much as 12 weeks off of work, within a 12 month period, to care for a child suffering from a serious health condition. This must be distinguished from a grandparent who wants to help their daughter take care of the baby. If your daughter has a health care provider willing to certify that your daughter has a serious health condition, you may qualify for FMLA or CFRA leave, assuming you meet all the other criteria.
