Family Medical Leave Act
The FMLA entitles eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons, with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave. Eligible employees are entitled to:
- Twelve work weeks of leave in a 12-month period for:
- The birth of a child and to care for the newborn child within one year of birth; The placement with the employee of a child for adoption or foster care and to care for the newly placed child within one year of placement; To care for the employee's spouse, child, or parent who has a serious health condition; A serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the essential functions of his or her job; Any qualifying exigency arising out of the fact that the employee's spouse, son, daughter, or parent is a covered military member on covered active duty
There is also eligible leave for service member care as follows:
- Twenty-six work weeks of leave during a single 12-month period to care for a covered service member with a serious injury or illness, if the eligible employee is the service member's spouse, son, daughter, parent, or next of kin (military caregiver leave). This leave is known as USERRA which is the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act.
For more information, you may read the entire Family and Medical Leave Policy and the Notice of Eligibility and Rights. To begin the request for FMLA please contact Human Resource or complete and submit the Request for Family/Medical Leave application.
