Although FMLA leave is unpaid, employees may have access to pay during an approved FMLA
leave through paid benefits such as PTO, workers compensation benefits, and/or short-term disability benefits. Employees are required to use their available PTO 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 happen at the same time as any available paid benefits.
Benefits Coverage During FMLAYour benefits coverage will remain active while on an approved leave of absence. Benefit premiums (paycheck deductions) will be collected if you have PTO to use, disability payments, or any other earnings while on leave. If at any point you do not have earnings, such as a zero-dollar check, benefit premiums will be owed when you return to work, collected in installments.
