  2. For care of a family member with a mental or physical illness, injury or health conditions; care of a family member who need medical diagnosis, care or treatment of a mental or physical illness, injury or health condition; or care of a family member who needs preventive medical care;
  3. To care for an infant or newly adopted child under 18, or for a newly placed foster child under 18, or for a child over 18 if the child is incapable of self-care because of mental or physical disability;
  4. To care for a family member with a serious health condition;
  5. To recover from or seek treatment for a serious health condition that renders the employee unable to perform at least one of the essential functions of the employee's job;
  6. To care for a child of the employee who is suffering from a non-serious illness, injury or condition;
  7. To deal with the death of a family member by attending the funeral or alternative, making arrangements necessitated by the death of a family member, or grieving the death of a family member;
  8. To seek legal or law enforcement assistance or remedies to ensure the health and safety of the employee or the employee's minor child or dependent for proceedings related to domestic violence, harassment, sexual assault, or stalking;
  9. To seek medical treatment, recover from injuries, or obtain services related to domestic violence, sexual assault, harassment or stalking incidents to the employee or employee's minor child or dependent;
  10. Public health emergencies by order of a public official that deems a closure of the college, the employee's child's school or day care facility.
