  • Nebraska does not currently require state family and medical leave for employees of private sector employers. See Family and Medical Leave.
  • While not required, if an employer provides a leave of absence to employees for the birth of a child, the same leave must be provided to an adoptive parent following the commencement of the parent-child relationship, subject to several limitations. See Adoptive Parents.
  • Nebraska law requires covered employers to provide family military leave to eligible employees. See Family Military Leave.
