This policy is compliant with the federal Family Medical Leave Act.
Employees are eligible for FMLA leave if they have been employed for at least one

12-month period for the following reasons:

Although FMLA leave is unpaid, employees may have access to pay during FMLA
leave through paid benefits such as PTO, MPMLA, workers compensation benefits
and/or STD/LTD benefits. Employees are required to use their available PTO and
MPMLA during FMLA leave, unless the employee is receiving short-term disability or
worker’s compensation pay. Regardless, all time off for a reason that is qualified as
FMLA leave will be counted against employees’ FMLA entitlement. This means that
FMLA leave will run concurrently with any available paid benefits.
