Employment Law Dealing with the food service business, many different situations may come up to deal with, not only for the employees but for the employer as well. One of the situations going to be discussed in this paper is dealing with the Family and Medical Leave Act. The other situation that will be discussed in this paper is dealing with the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

The Family and Medical Leave Act provides covered employees with entitlement to up to 12 weeks of job protection, of unpaid leave during any 12 months for the following reasons: “Birth and care of the employee’s child or placement for adoption or foster care of a child with the employee, to care for an immediate family member (spouse, child, parent) who has a serious health condition, or for the employee’s own serious health condition.” (Family, 2006) The employer must maintain group health benefits that the employee was receiving at the time the leave began. The employee will still have to contribute the part of the insurance that is taken out of the employee’s check. The company I used to work for had a husband and wife working at the same faculty and on the same shift, both were in management and had put in time for Family and Medical Leave so that they could finish up the adoption of a child from a foreign country. Both employee’s had been with the company for about 10 years each and meet at a company function. Both employees’s had paid time off to help cover their time request which was going to be for a one month period, the husband was planning to be back after three weeks.
