FAMILY MEDICAL LEAVE ACT

 

The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) provides eligible employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave each fiscal year for the following family and medical reasons:

  • for the care of your child immediately following birth or placement in your home for adoption or foster care;
  • for the care of your spouse, child or parent who has a serious health condition; or
  • for a serious health condition that makes you unable to perform your job.

Employees are eligible if they have at least one year of service with the State and have worked 1,250 hours for the State in the 12 calendar months immediately prior to the beginning of the leave.

All eligible paid leave must be taken before using unpaid leave and advance notice and medical certification is required prior to the commencement of leave. If medically necessary, intermittent or reduced leave may be taken.

Jobs and benefits are protected while on FMLA leave. Upon return from FMLA leave, employees are restored to the original or equivalent position with equivalent pay, benefits and other employment terms, unless the employee would not otherwise have been employed at that time.

For the duration of FMLA leave, the State will pay its contribution toward employees insurance coverage under the condition coverage would have been provided if the employee had continued working.
