  • Georgia currently does not require state family and medical leave for employees of private sector employers. Georgia employers with 50 or more employees will likely be required to adhere to the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). See Family and Medical Leave.
  • An employer with 25 or more employees that provides sick leave must allow employees to use up to five days per year to care for an immediate family member. See Kin Care Leave.
