The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides eligible employees with the right to request up to 12 weeks in any 12 months for the birth of a child or placement of a child with the employee for adoption or foster care, to care for a family member with a serious health condition, for an employee’s own serious health condition and when a family member is called up to or on active military service. The FMLA also provides 26 weeks of unpaid leave in a single 12-month period for an employee caring for a family member recovering from an illness or injury suffered while on active military duty. The City will provide these leave benefits to employees who have worked 1250 hours during a 12 month period immediately preceding the requested leave. Check applicable labor agreements for information on leaves of absence that may differ than what is listed on this website.
