Intermittent Leave

< Back to Leave of Absence

When medically necessary, an intermittent leave may require an employee to take time off in separate periods of time due to a single illness or injury as determined by the health care provider of the individual, rather than one continuous period of time. As an example, leave may include periods from an hour at a time, a day at a time or multiple days in a row. A reduced work schedule is one that reduces the usual number of hours per workweek, or hours per workday, of an employee for a specified period of time.

An employee may elect or be required to use accrued sick leave, vacation, compensatory time off to cover the time off in accordance with policy and/or collective bargaining agreements.

To find out whether you're eligible for FML or what leave options may be available to you for intermittent leave, please contact your Leave of Absence Coordinator for consultation and guidance.
