I thought the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) already provided this type of benefit?

FMLA provides unpaid, job-protected leave for up to 12 weeks to employees who have completed 1,250 hours of service in a rolling 52-week period. FMLA applies to the same events as Paid Family Leave, but does not cover the same eligible family members. When an event qualifies for both Paid Family Leave and FMLA, the employee will receive Paid Family Leave benefits and their FMLA leave will run concurrently.
