Supplemental Family and Medical Leave

A regular status employee who has exhausted all Family and Medical Leave for their own serious health condition 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. If the underlying Family and Medical Leave was to care for a family member with a serious health condition, parental bonding, or Military Caregiver Leave, the employee is eligible for up to thirty (30) days in a calendar year only to the extent that the 30-day allotment was not used during the underlying FML.

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.

For employees on Supplemental Family and Medical leave, health plan coverage (medical, dental, and optical) will continue in accordance with each plan’s requirements.
