Wisconsin Family & Medical Leave Act


In addition to rights under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Wisconsin Family and Medical Leave Act requires that all employers with 50 or more permanent employees must allow employees of either sex up to six (6) weeks of leave in a twelve-month period for the birth or adoption of a child, up to two (2) weeks of leave in a calendar year for the care of a child, spouse, parent, domestic partner, as defined in § 40.02(1) or 770.01(1), or parent of a domestic partner with a serious health condition and up to two (2) weeks of leave in a twelve-month period for the employee's own serious health condition.

The law also states that no one may "interfere with, restrain or deny the exercise of any right" provided under the law and it also prohibits discharging or discriminating against anyone for opposing a practice prohibited under the law, for filing a charge under the law, for assisting in an investigation or other proceeding under the law or for testifying in an investigation or hearing held in relation to rights guaranteed by the law.
