Family Medical Leave

Human Resources is providing enhanced service and administration for family medical leave

Family Medical Leave (FML) allows an eligible employee to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected time off work in a 12-month period for certain qualifying reasons, such as:

  • pregnancy,
  • birth, adoption, or foster placement of a child,
  • serious health condition of employee,
  • serious health condition of employee's family member (spouse or domestic partner, child, parent, parent-in-law, "in loco parentis" relationship), or
  • the non-serious illness of a child (no medical treatment required, but child requires home care).

Review EPP 10  for more information about qualifying reasons for protected leave and your employment rights and responsibilities. Review the FMLA and OFLA posters for a summary of leave entitlements, benefits and protections, eligibility requirements and requesting leave under these Acts. For more information review EPP 10 or your collective bargaining agreement (CBA).
