                     (b)  to provide care or support to a member of the employee's immediate family, or a member of the employee's household, who requires care or support because of:

                              (i)  a personal illness, or personal injury, affecting the member; or

                             (ii)  an unexpected emergency affecting the member.

Note 1:       The notice and evidence requirements of section 107 must be complied with.
