What Is Medical Leave

Medical Leave under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), allows eligible employees certain legal rights for absence up to a total of 12 workweeks (maximum) of unpaid Medical Leave during an applicable 12-month period. This Medical Leave is for an employee's own "serious health condition" as defined by FMLA regulations.

Who Is Eligible

By law, to be eligible for a Medical Leave qualifying under FMLA, you must be employed with the Company for at least 12 months and have worked for at least 1,250 hours during the previous 12-month period.

In addition:

  • The medical absence must exceed 3 consecutive work days.
  • The medical absence occurs frequently or sporadically.
  • The medical condition is determined to be a "serious health condition" under FMLA guidelines

What Forms You Need to Complete

The forms below are needed in order to obtain medical information from your physician. This paperwork is necessary for your leave to be processed and your medical absence deemed a "serious health condition." Please contact your local HRC in order for your leave to be initiated.

Reminder: Please ensure accurate time entry (i.e., payroll coding-“sick absence”) is addressed during any period of associated absence when related to employee’s own health condition.
