Family and Medical Leave

Employees receive up to 16 weeks of unpaid job-protected leave in a 24-month period for certain family and medical reasons under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993. You are eligible if you have worked for one year and for 1,000 hours over a period of 12 months.
Family Medical Leave (FML) runs concurrently with any other paid or unpaid leave (short-term disability, workers’ compensation, Paid Time Off, Paid Annual Leave, Paid Days Leave or any unpaid absence that qualifies under FMLA).

Paid Parental Leave*

Up to four weeks of paid leave is provided to regular full-time and regular part-time employees who are welcoming a new child into their family through birth or adoption. You must have completed a minimum of one continuous year of employment immediately prior to the birth or adoption placement.

This includes paid time off for male and female parents and is inclusive of birth recovery for birth parents and/or bonding time for non-birth parents. Manager approval is required.
