Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
FMLA is for employees employed by the District for 12 months, and the employee has worked 1250 hours in the 12 months immediately preceding the need for leave. This leave is for maternity, illness of a member of the immediate family (mother, father, spouse, and children) or illness of self. The term parent does NOT include a parent “in-law”. The term son or daughter does include individuals 18 years or over, if they are “incapable of self-care” because of mental or physical disability that limits one or more of the “major life activities”.
Maximum duration: 12 work weeks
Temporary Disability Leave (TDL)
This leave is only for full-time educators who have exhausted FML or have been with the District less than one year. This leave is for the illness of the employee only. Maximum duration: 180 calendar days
This type of leave allows very little or no advance planning and will be granted to employees in the same manner as sick leave. Salaried employees are required to report their absences in ReadySub. Hourly employees’ absences are entered into Kronos by the supervisor or entered on a timesheet.
This leave may be used for the following reasons only:
- Employee illness
- Illness in the employee’s immediate family
- Family emergency (i.e., natural disasters or life-threatening situations)
- Death in the immediate family
- Childcare or adoption of a child
- Active military service
