Family and Medical Leave. 16.1 A. Consistent with the federal Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) and any amendments thereto and the Washington State Family Leave Act of 2006 (WFLA), an employee who has worked for the state for at least twelve (12) months and for at least one thousand two hundred fifty (1,250) hours during the twelve (12) months prior to the requested leave is entitled to up to twelve (12) workweeks of family medical leave in a twelve (12) month period for one or more of the following reasons 1 - 4:
Family and Medical Leave. Employees with at least 12 months of employment and at least 1,250 hours of service with the DAC during the 12-month period immediately preceding the commencement of the leave may take a total of 12 work weeks of unpaid family or medical leave during the applicable 12-month period. The applicable 12-month period is a "rolling" 12-month period measured backward from the date an employee uses leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Leave may be taken for one or more of the following reasons: • Because of the birth of the employee's son or daughter and in order to care for the child. • Because of the placement of a son or daughter with the employee for adoption or xxxxxx care. • In order to care for the employee's spouse, son, daughter, or parent who has a serious health condition. • Because of a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the functions of his or her position. • Because the employee’s spouse, son, daughter, or parent is a covered service member in need of military caregiver leave from the employee. • Because an employee’s spouse, son, daughter, or parent is on active duty or has been notified of an impending call or order to active duty in support of a contingency operation and the employee needs leave for a qualifying exigency.

The employee must follow the DAC’s usual and customary procedures for requesting a leave of absence and must give at least 30 days' written notice, where possible. The FMLA request must state why a leave of absence is needed and the anticipated duration of the leave of absence (including starting date and return date). If an employee takes a leave for the serious health condition of the employee, or the employee's spouse, child or parent, the employee will be required to submit a Certification of Health Care Provider verifying the employee’s or family member’s medical condition and the need for leave. Completed and signed Certifications must be returned to the DAC fifteen (15) calendar days after the employee receives the Certification form from the DAC.

Family and Medical Leave. The parties recognize the applicability of the federal Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Union recognizes the Company’s right to establish FMLA policies and rules which are consistent with that law and/or any applicable state law as well as any express provision of this Agreement. These benefits are described and administered in accordance with the Company Policy.
Family and Medical Leave. Leave may be taken by eligible employees pursuant to the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Oregon Family Leave Act (OFLA). Employees must make application for Family and Medical Leave at least 30 days prior to the event or as soon as they become aware of the need for such leave. The employee is expected to make application for Family and Medical Leave for FMLA/OFLA qualified absences due to illness or injury beyond three (3) days. An employee who is qualified for and utilizes leave under the provisions of this section shall have all such leave time counted towards the annual amount allowed under FMLA and OFLA. Unless designated by the employee, leave banks will be reduced in the following order: paid leave, compensatory leave, holiday compensatory leave, frozen paid leave. In the event that leave banks are depleted the employee will be in approved leave without pay status through the remainder of the qualified leave. The County shall continue to make the contributions for insurance coverage while the employee is on qualified leave, and the employee shall be required to pay any required employee's portion of premiums for such coverage to stay in effect for the full term of the leave. The County may require medical certification(s) to support a request for leave and may require additional medical opinions as allowed under FMLA and OFLA regulations. Fees associated with the completion of the medical certification forms, or additional medical opinion not covered by insurance, shall be paid by the County in accordance with FMLA and OFLA regulations. Upon return from Family and Medical Leave, employees shall be restored to their original or equivalent positions with equivalent pay and benefits. If the Family and Medical Leave was for the employee, the employee may be required to provide a medical release upon returning to work. The use of paid leave to attend to a family member shall be limited to time qualified under FMLA/OFLA.
Family and Medical Leave. 1. Notwithstanding other provisions of this Agreement, the Board agrees to abide by the provisions and regulations of the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 and all amendments. The parties to this Agreement agree that all benefits guaranteed by the Act will be provided to employees covered by this Agreement. Any alleged violations of the Act may be processed as grievances using the procedure herein. Pursuit of such a grievance in no way prevents an employee from enforcing his/her rights under the Act as provided by law.
Family and Medical Leave. Section 40.1 The Union and the City recognize the necessity of ensuring compliance with the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993. The policy guidelines provided within the Human Resources Policies and Procedures Manual shall be used for administering Family and Medical Leave.
Family and Medical Leave. All employees are eligible for leave for the birth, adoption and first-year care of the employee’s child upon proper application for a period not to exceed one (1) year. For employees who are eligible for leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the district’s leave will be applied concurrently to the FMLA leave. It is emphatically the position of the district that this policy is not intended to expand the 12-workweek applicability of the FMLA.
