Family Medical Leave Act

The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) allows employees up to twelve (12) weeks job-protected leave for certain family and medical reasons. Employees are eligible if they have worked for at least one year, and for 1,250 hours over the previous twelve (12) months.

Leave may be requested under the Family Medical leave Act for the following reasons:

  • to care for the employee's child after birth, or placement for adoption or foster care;
  • to care for the employee's spouse, child or parent who has a serious health condition;
  • for a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform their job.

Advance notice and medical documentation may be required prior to leave approval. View Campus Forms.
