Family and Medical Leave (FMLA)

The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, as amended (FMLA) provides eligible associates unpaid leave under qualifying circumstances for consecutive or intermittent periods of up to 12 work weeks in a rolling 12-month period. The FMLA also applies to certain situations involving service in the military and allows eligible associates to take up to 26 weeks of unpaid leave for qualified family members and next of kin who incur serious injuries or illnesses while on active military duty.

In situations not covered by FMLA, leave requests will be reviewed under the provisions Leave of Absence (Non-FMLA)

If you need to request Family Medical Leave then please contact Human Resources to determine your eligibility. To learn more about eligibility criteria and your rights and responsibilities under the FMLA law Click Here.

If you are utilizing your Family Medical Leave to care for a newborn or adopted child then please remember that you must enroll the child as a new dependent in your elected insurance plans as soon as possible. There is a 30 day window in which your newborn child is covered under insurance but once it passes your child will no longer have coverage.  The system will require a social security number in order to enroll them.  If you have not yet received your child’s social security number and are on the 20th calendar day post birth or placement please contact Human Resources  before the 30 day expiration window and they can assist you in getting your child covered.
