Familias Primero de Respuesta al Coronavirus
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) requires certain employers to provide their employees with paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave for specific reasons related to COVID-19. These provisions are applicable from April 1, 2020, through December 31, 2020. If you believe you meet the eligibility requirements for leave under the FFCRA, contact Patti Wade
, Director of Human Resources.
Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) requires covered employers to provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave to eligible employees for certain family and medical reasons. Employees are eligible if they have worked for the CSD at least one year, have worked at least 1,250 hours over the previous 12 months, and have not taken FMLA in the last 12 months. CSD will abide by the rules and regulations established under the Family Medical Leave Act.
To apply for Family Medical Leave, employees must complete the FMLA Request Form and submit it to the Human Resource Department, along with the FMLA Physician's Statement completed by their medical provider. All forms should be submitted at least 30 days prior to the anticipated leave, if possible. Employees with ongoing medical conditions will be required to furnish an updated FMLA Physician's Statement every 30 days.
Approved FMLA leave will run concurrent with all existing accrued paid leave. When paid leave is exhausted, the employee will be placed on unpaid leave. Unpaid leave is deducted at the employee's daily pay rate. For questions regarding FMLA, contact the Human Resource Department.
