To be eligible for family and medical leave (FML) an employee must have worked for at least 12 months and have worked at least 1,250 hours in the 12 months preceding the leave. If an employee is eligible for FML they have the right to take up to 12 weeks or 60 days intermittently of unpaid leave during their work calendar year.
Your health benefits will be maintained during FML under the same conditions as if you continued to work; and you will be reinstated to the same or an equivalent job with the same pay, benefits, and terms and conditions of employment on your return from leave. If you do not return to work following FML for a reason other than (1) the continuation, recurrence, or onset of a serious health condition which would entitle you to FML; or (2) other circumstances beyond your control, you will be required to reimburse the District for its share of health insurance premiums paid on your behalf during your family and medical leave.
If you do not qualify for FML you may request catastrophic leave by contacting the
Human Talent Department at: firstname.lastname@example.org
