    The goal of this lesson is to teach workers about federal laws that cover time off from work for jury duty, military leave, and family and medical leave, among other things.

    When you finish this course, you should have a better idea of how to:

    As an employee, they can ask for both jury duty leave and pay for jury duty leave, as well as explain the difference between jury duty leave and witness leave.
    In the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, (USERRA), there are rules and exceptions for both the employee and the employer, as well as for the benefits that the employee gets from the state.
    It’s important to know about the Family and Medical Leave Act, which gives employees time off for medical reasons. This includes the employee’s rights, responsibilities, and the general exceptions.
