3 Leave of Absence Information Time off work is not a UC leave until the 15 th consecutive calendar day of absence. –Dept./org unit is responsible for reporting time away from work beginning on the first day of absence. –If absence is 15 consecutive calendar days or longer UC Leave provisions apply UC Leave is effective on the first day of absence Time MUST be reported accurately –If absence is LESS than 15 consecutive calendar days Employee is not placed on UC Leave Time away from work must still be reported

5 Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Federal legislation Provides unpaid JOB PROTECTION; –FMLA does not stand alone! As appropriate FMLA will run concurrent with UC time off work and/or a UC leave UC policies/collective bargaining agreements regarding use of sick time are sometimes more generous than FMLA –e.g., UC definitions of immediate family member are much broader than FMLA’s definition; FMLA may not be taken for domestic partners, etc. What about work-related injuries and illnesses? –Handled in the same manner as any time off work or leave issue except the employee may elect to be absent without pay. Refer employee questions to the Sr. Leave Administrator

6 FMLA - Time off Work Dept./org unit must: –Make timely FMLA eligibility determination (within 5 business days after the employee “puts UC on notice”) Submit a copy of the provisional designation form to the Leave Administrator in central HR Send employee notice if not eligible for FMLA or provisionally designate absence as FMLA Send communications regarding Leave to employee within required timeframes; continue to communicate leave status changes to employee (e.g., paid to unpaid, etc.) –Report time off and, if necessary process leaves in UC systems
