When Can an Employee Take Time off to Care for a Spouse, Parent, Registered Domestic Partner, Parent-In-Law, or Grandparent?

An employee may use available paid time off when a spouse, parent, registered domestic partner, parent-in-law, or grandparent has a serious or emergency health condition, which requires an overnight stay in a hospital or other medical-care facility; which results in a period of incapacity, treatment or recovery following inpatient care, or which requires continuing treatment under the care of a health care services provider that includes any period of incapacity to work or attend to regular daily activities.
