How much time off does the FMLA guarantee?

The Federal FMLA provides 12 weeks of unpaid leave during a 12-month period; the DC law allows employees 16 weeks over a two-year period. Accordingly, an employee may be entitled to take 16 weeks one year under the D.C. Act and 12 weeks the next year under the Federal Act (but not vice versa). An employee is not eligible for 28 weeks in a single year. A year is defined as a calendar year.

For example:

2002 (16 weeks) 2003 (12 weeks)
April, May, June, July January, February, March
September, October, November, December January, February, March
