  • Alabama does not have a general state family and medical leave law applicable to private employers. See Family and Medical Leave.
  • Alabama requires covered employers to provide unpaid family leave to eligible employees for the birth or adoption of a child. See Leave for Childbirth and Adoption.
  • Other types of leave may be available to Alabama employees - some required by federal, state or local law, and some provided by company policy, as well as several sources of income replacement. See Interaction of Leave Laws.
