This policy provides employees with a consistent and uniform process for medical leaves of absence as required of the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, as amended January 2008, and its implementing regulations effective January 16, 2009.

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides an entitlement of up to 12 weeks of job-protected, unpaid leave during any 12-month period to eligible, covered employees for the following reasons: 1) birth and care of the eligible employee's child, or placement for adoption or foster care of a child with the employee; 2) care of an immediate family member (spouse, child, parent) who has a serious health condition; or 3) care of the employee's own serious health condition. It also requires that employee's group health benefits be maintained during the leave. For more information regarding your rights under FMLA, please review the links below
