Does the Family and Medical Leave Act Protect Grandparents Caring for Grandchildren?

Sometimes cases with interesting facts can lead courts to make decisions we might not necessarily expect at first glance, and the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals may have recently done just that. The primary issue in Gienapp v. Harbor Crest involved a box, on a form, left unfilled by the plaintiff. But the most noteworthy holding from the 7th Circuit decision has nothing at all to do with that empty box. Instead, it has to do with a grandparent's rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act to care for their grandchildren when that child's parent is ill.
