Flexible Work Arrangements: How to Choose

Because flexible work arrangements have not been used widely by staff until recently, many people tend to think of them as a special benefit or privilege for employees. The truth is that there can be significant benefits for management as well. These benefits are discussed in more detail below. Generally speaking, however, the best arrangement is the one that most effectively addresses the employee's personal needs or preferences and the department's need to provide effective and efficient services.

Supplemental Family and Medical Leave

A regular status employee who has exhausted all Family and Medical Leave is eligible for Supplemental Family and Medical Leave for up to an additional twelve (12) workweeks or until the end of the calendar year, whichever is less, if the need for a Family and Medical Leave that is in progress continues beyond twelve (12) workweeks.

However, the aggregate absence from work for Pregnancy Disability Leave, Family and Medical Leave, and Supplemental Family and Medical Leave may not exceed seven (7) months during the calendar year, except as may be required by law.
