Leave Benefits Information

Authored By: U.S. Department of Labor



Leave benefits allow employees to take time off from work. The extent of the leave and whether it is paid in whole, in part, or not at all is generally a matter of agreement between an employer and an employee (or the employee's representative). Certain types of leave are required by law, whereas other types are voluntary incentives provided by employers.
