Military families face unique challenges and stressors. When a family member is deployed, on duty, or injured in the line of duty, employees must make important decisions regarding childcare, finances, medical treatment, and more.

In this course, we'll discuss who qualifies, the types of leave that fall under Military FMLA, the process of requesting leave, and what happens after taking Military FMLA.
