HR-7-0 Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

The "FMLA year" is considered to be a twelve- (12) month period, rolling backward for each employee. During the period of FMLA/OFLA leave, the employer's insurance contribution toward the health plan will continue at that level and under the conditions coverage would have been provided if the employee had continued to be employed continuously during the leave.

The Employer's determination of FMLA eligibility requires medical certification that the leave is needed due to an FMLA-qualifying condition of the employee or that of a member of the family. At the College's expense, a second opinion may be requested.
