The Wisconsin Equal Rights Division has ruled that under Wisconsin's Family Medical Leave Act (WFMLA), the employer cannot impose use of WFMLA leave on the employee. Rather, it is the employee who decides whether and when to use medical leave under the WFMLA for a qualified illness or injury. Under the WFMLA, most Wisconsin employees are entitled to take up to a total of two weeks per year off work, unpaid, for their own or family members' serious medical conditions. They are protected from penalty (like write-ups and termination) for such absences.
