An employee with at least six (6) months of service can request from Human Resources an unpaid leave for up to six (6) weeks for a qualifying medical situation which would otherwise meet guidelines of FMLA if only had enough time in position. This leave can only be granted if business demands allow and all vacation and sick/personal time have been exhausted. Insurance deductions would remain a responsibility of the employee.
Effective January 1, 2015, P.A. 98-1050 creates additional protections for pregnant employees. See Human Resources for details.
