DOL/WHD RIN: 1235-AA09 Publication ID: Spring 2014 
Title: Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, as Amended 
Abstract: The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) entitles eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had taken leave. Eligible employees may take FMLA leave, among other reasons, to care for the employee's spouse who has a serious health condition. The Department proposes to revise the definition of "spouse" in light of the United States Supreme Court's decision in United States v. Windsor.
