FMLA and disability of child
No. The age of the child at the onset of a disability is irrelevant to determine whether the child is a
son or daughter under the FMLA. An eligible employee is entitled to take FMLA leave to care for a
son or daughter with a serious health condition who is 18 years of age or older and incapable of
self-care because of a disability regardless of when the disability commenced.
