Family Medical Leave (FML)

Family Medical Leave
Family Medical Leave (FML) is a form of job protection that runs concurrently with all applicable forms of paid and unpaid leave

Family Medical Leave may be taken by eligible employees for the following medical reasons:

  1. The addition of a child through birth, adoption, or foster care.
  2. The serious health condition of the employee or an immediate family member.
  3. To care for a service member (current member of the Armed Forces) who becomes seriously injured or ill during active duty.
  4. When a qualifying exigency arises due to a spouse, child, or parent of the employee being on active duty in the Reserves or National Guard in support of a contingency operation.
Paid Parental Leave
All parental leave runs concurrently with Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Thus, leave taken under the Parental Leave Policy counts as part of, not in addition to, the 12 weeks of leave guaranteed by the FMLA.

The intention of parental leave is to provide care and bonding time with a child during the first 12 months of the qualifying event (birth, adoption, foster care placement).
