    FMLA state of TX (one example of state differences)

    In addition to the federal component of the FMLA, there is also a state component. However, as each state is different and run by its own governmental entity, the state components are not always (if ever) the same. That is why it is important to be sure to review the FMLA rules for your state prior to needing to use the FMLA. The link below is for the state of Texas so you can get an idea of the state component. There are 49 additional links, which was too many to put here.
