(820 ILCS 151/10)
    Sec. 10. Family Military Leave Requirement.
    (a) Any employer, as defined in Section 5 of this Act, that employs between 15 and 50 employees shall provide up to 15 days of unpaid family military leave to an employee during the time federal or State deployment orders are in effect, subject to the conditions set forth in this Section. Family military leave granted under this Act may consist of unpaid leave.
    (b) An employer, as defined in Section 5 of this Act, that employs more than 50 employees shall provide up to 30 days of unpaid family military leave to an employee during the time federal or State deployment orders are in effect, subject to the conditions set forth in this Section. Family military leave granted under this Act may consist of unpaid leave. The number of days of leave provided to an employee under this subsection (b) because the employee's spouse or child is called to military service shall be reduced by the number of days of leave provided to the employee under subdivision (a)(1)(E) of Section 102 of the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 because of any qualifying exigency arising out of the fact that the employee's spouse or child is on covered active duty as defined in that Act (or has been notified of an impending call or order to covered active duty) in the Armed Forces.
    (c) The employee shall give at least 14 days notice of the intended date upon which the family military leave will commence if leave will consist of 5 or more consecutive work days. Where able, the employee shall consult with the employer to schedule the leave so as to not unduly disrupt the operations of the employer. Employees taking military family leave for less than 5 consecutive days shall give the employer advanced notice as is practicable. The employer may require certification from the proper military authority to verify the employee's eligibility for the family military leave requested.
    (d) An employee shall not take leave as provided under this Act unless he or she has exhausted all accrued vacation leave, personal leave, compensatory leave, and any other leave that may be granted to the employee, except sick leave and disability leave.
