Leave Options

The Family Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) protects employees while they are away from their job due to one of the following reasons:  personal illness, child birth, adoption, foster care, care of a spouse, care of a minor dependent child, care of a disabled adult child or care of a parent. Employees must meet all of the criteria set forth by the Federal Government in order to utilize FMLA.

Part-time classified employees may be eligible to utilize the District's Part-Time Health Leave policy (PTHL). This option is an alternative for those who do not meet the FMLA criteria. This leave option can only be used for an employee's serious health condition or child birth.

Contact Jennifer Lumley, 913-993-6497, in the Benefits Office if you have a need to take FMLA or PTHL.
