Family & Medical Leave

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) offers eligible employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave in a rolling 12-month period for a personal health condition; the serious health condition of a spouse, child or parent; and/or the birth, adoption or foster care placement of a child.

FMLA ensures you will be reinstated into the same job or one with substantially similar pay, duties and working conditions at the conclusion of your leave.

To request Family Medical Leave or for questions regarding Family Medical Leave, please contact your Family Medical Leave Coordinator listed in the intranet.
