In addition to the Family Medical Leave Act, a federal law, it is interesting to note that New Jersey has something called the Family Leave Act. The difference being that the New Jersey Act covers leave for family and their medical conditions, but not a personal medical condition, whereas the federal law, which also applies to New Jersey, provides you that leave for your own serious medical condition. Both acts require certain information to be provided to the employer and only apply to certain size employers.
