The Federal Employees Family Friendly Leave Act, or Family Friendly Leave Act, became effective in 1994. It expired three years later, but its concepts of sick leave for family care and bereavement absences are incorporated in present law at 5 USC 6307 and OPM's sick leave regulations at 5 CFR 630.401. The sick leave definitions are at 5 CFR 630.201.
Sick leave for family care or bereavement grants Federal employees up to 104 hours (13 days) of sick leave, each year, to adopt a child, to care for a family member, or to arrange for or attend the funeral of a family member.
