Leave Resources

Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

Employees must provide Human Resources at least 30 days advance notice of an anticipated FMLA leave. When the need for leave is not foreseeable, the employee must provide notice as soon as both possible and practical. The employer has no obligation to retroactively designate leave as FMLA.  Once the request is received by Human Resources and FMLA eligibility has been determined, you will receive FMLA information within 5 business days.
