Sick Leave Entitlement in United States

There is no national requirement in the US to offer paid sick leave, though many states have their own laws on this. The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requires companies with more than 50 employees to allow them unpaid time off for medical leave or to care for a family member. It’s important to note that in reality, even without a legal obligation to provide paid leave, 74% of full-time US workers have an arrangement with their employer to provide paid time off in the event of sickness. Arrangements vary from state to state.

Parental Leave in United States

Maternity Leave:

FMLA was signed into law in 1993 and requires employers to provide up to 12 weeks unpaid leave for both parents at the birth of a baby for companies of 50 employees or more. Many smaller businesses do not have mandated paid maternity leave for employees. 

Paternity Leave:

Paternity leave varies state by state. Many states do not require employers to provide paid paternity or parental leave. If an employee is eligible and covered by FMLA, they may be allowed unpaid leave from the federal government. 

Annual Leave Entitlement in United States

Vacation time is not required by US law. Instead, it's a benefit decided on an individual basis between employees and employers. 14 working days off is standard practice.

Termination in United States

In almost all states, an employer can terminate an employee for any non-discriminatory, non-retaliatory reason, at any time, with or without notice, and with or without cause. But typically, employees are terminated with 2 weeks notice.

They are only a ballpark estimate, and the actual figure may be above or below the quoted amount based on a number of variables. These estimates represent a monthly average each year. In some cases, contribution maximums will lead to payments earlier in the year being larger, before being reduced once max is hit.
