Family Leave

Sometimes you need to take an extended period of time away from work to care for a new baby or family member or to recover from an illness. Through the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), you may be eligible to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave.

Qualifying situations include:

  • Your own serious health condition that makes you unable to perform the functions of your job (runs concurrently with short-term disability (STD).
  • A serious health condition of your child, spouse, or parent that requires you to care for that family member.
  • The birth of a child that requires you to take time off to care for the child (six or eight weeks depending on natural or Cesarean childbirth; will run concurrently with STD).
  • The placement of a child with you for adoption or foster care.
  • Covered military family leave.
