• Your Rights Under The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993

    FMLA requires covered employers to provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave to “eligible” employees for certain family and medical reasons.

    Employees are eligible if they have worked for a covered employer for at least one year, and for 1,250 hours over the previous 12 months.

    Eligible Reasons For Taking Leave: 

    Unpaid leave must be granted for any of the following reasons:

    •  to care for the employee’s child after birth, or placement for adoption or foster 
    •  to care for the employee’s spouse, son or daughter, or parent, who has a serious
        health condition; or
    •  for a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the
        employee’s job.

    Please refer to District Policy DECA (Legal) for detailed information and regulations.
