 Family and Medical Leave Act

 Eligibility  To be eligible for family or medical leave under this policy, an employee must meet all of the following: (1) the employee must have worked for the Sheriff for at least 12 months (52 weeks), which need not be 12 consecutive months; and (2) an employee must have worked for the Sheriff for at least 1,250 hours during the 12 months immediately preceding the date the requested leave of absence would begin.  We count towards both the 1,250-hour and 12-months-of-service requirements the time employees are on an approved military leave of absence or are otherwise serving in the military.  We do not count any hours during any other period of leave of absence towards the second eligibility requirement.

Types of Leave.   Eligible employees may request or take up to 12 weeks leave during the rolling 12-month period defined below for any of these reasons:

             For the birth of the employees child (mother or father), or the placement by the State of a child with the employee for adoption or foster care, including child care after birth or placement for adoption or foster care.  If both a husband and wife are eligible employees, they may take only a combined total of 12 weeks.  Leave to care for a child after birth or after adoption or placement for foster care must be taken within one year after the child's birth or placement.

              To care for the employees spouse, child or parent with a serious health condition. The term parent includes the biological parent of an employee or an individual who stands or stood in loco parentis to the employee when the employee was under 18 or incapable of self-care because of mental or physical disability, but does not otherwise include a parent in-law or a grand-parent.  The term child includes a biological, adopted, or foster child, a stepchild, a legal ward, or a child of a person standing in loco parentis towards the child, but does not include any individual age 18 or over, unless the person is incapable of self-care because of mental or physical disability.  The term spouse includes an employees husband or wife, as defined by applicable State law, including a common law spouse who the employee has previously held out or represented to be the employees spouse.

             For the employees own serious health condition (including pregnancy, childbirth and related conditions).

Serious Health Condition.   A serious health condition means an illness, injury, impairment, or physical or mental condition that involves: (1) inpatient care (e.g., an overnight stay in a hospital), including any period of incapacity or any subsequent treatment in connection with the inpatient care; or (2) continuing treatment by a health care provider and a period of incapacity of more than three consecutive calendar days; or (3) continuing treatment by a health care provider and any period of incapacity caused by pregnancy, childbirth and related conditions; or (4) continuing treatment by a health care provider and any period of incapacity caused by a chronic or permanent long-term condition; or (5) any period of absence to receive or recover from multiple treatments by or under orders or referral from a health care provider for restorative surgery after an injury or for a condition so serious that, in the absence of medical intervention or treatment, would likely result in a period of incapacity of more than three consecutive calendar days.  Incapacity means an inability to perform regular daily activities or essential job duties due to the condition, treatment, or recovery.  A serious health condition may include job-related injuries and illnesses that might also qualify for workers compensation insurance coverage.
