Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

The FMLA entitles eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave. Eligible employees are entitled to:

Twelve workweeks of leave in a 12-month period for:

the birth of a child and to care for the newborn child within one year of birth;
the placement with the employee of a child for adoption or foster care and to care for the newly placed child within one year of placement;
to care for the employee’s spouse, child, or parent who has a serious health condition;
a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the essential functions of his or her job;
any qualifying exigency arising out of the fact that the employee’s spouse, son, daughter, or parent is a covered military member on “covered active duty;” or

Twenty-six workweeks of leave during a single 12-month period to care for a covered servicemember with a serious injury or illness if the eligible employee is the servicemember’s spouse, son, daughter, parent, or next of kin (military caregiver leave).

Employees are eligible for FMLA leave if they have worked for Eden II for at least twelve months (not necessarily consecutive), have worked at least 1,250 hours during the 12 months immediately prior to the requested leave of absence, and are employed at a worksite where there are 50 or more employees within 75 miles.  

Employees should use Eden II’s leave form to request a family and medical leave.  The form can be found on this site or you may contact your human resources representative to obtain the form.  When the need for family and medical leave is foreseeable, such as due to a planned medical procedure, an employee must provide 30 days advance notice.

When 30 days notice is not practicable because the employee just learned of the need for leave or there is a change in circumstances or a medical emergency, then the employee must provide notice as soon as practicable (generally the same day or the day following the day the employee became aware of the need for leave).

When leave is requested for the employee’s or a family member’s medical reasons, the employee must submit a medical certification from the health care provider of the patient that establishes the employee is eligible for family and medical leave. Human Resources will provide the appropriate certification form. A complete and sufficient certification form must be provided as soon as is reasonably practical, and not later than the date leave begins or within 15 days of Eden II’s request, whichever is later.

Eden II’s full policy regarding the Family and Medical Leave Act can be found within its Human Resources Policies and Procedures, or you may contact the Human Resources department for more information.
