Who is considered a "Family Member?"

A family member includes:

  • A spouse (i.e., husband or wife).
  • A son or daughter (biological, adopted, foster, stepchild, legal ward, or a child of a person standing in loco parentis) who is either under the age of 18, or over the age of 18 and disabled within the meaning of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
  • A parent (including a person who has acted in loco parentis, such as a stepparent or grandparent).
  • A person with whom the employee shares or has shared within the last year a mutual residence and with whom the employee maintains a "committed relationship." Reasonable documentation may be required to confirm a family relationship.
