Family & Medical Leave
Family & Medical Leave Act of 1993
It is the policy of Rose State College to comply fully with the requirements of the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (the “Act”) as amended by Section 585 of the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2008 (NDAA), Public Law 110-181. This Act requires that a covered employer provide up to 12 workweeks of unpaid leave to eligible employees. Leave may be unpaid or paid based on the applicable leave policies of Rose State College.
Eligible employees and the qualifying reasons leave may be requested are defined in Rose State’s Policies and Procedures Manual, Family Medical Leave Act (PDF).
Rose State College intends to remain faithful to the requirements of the FMLA. Questions regarding the interpretation, administration and application of the Act to eligible employees shall be resolved by reliance on the mandatory obligations of the FMLA and its’ interpretive regulations. Where relevant, RSC will consider its' own policies, procedures and practices.
Application for Leave
An employee requesting Family and Medical Leave leave must complete this application (PDF) and state the reason for the leave, the duration of leave (if known), and the starting and ending dates of the leave requested. This application for Family and Medical Leave is to be submitted to the employee’s immediate supervisor at least 30 days before family or medical leave is to begin. If for reasons beyond the employee’s control the leave is to begin in less than 30 days, an employee must give notice to his or her immediate supervisor as soon as it is practicable, ordinarily within two to three working days of when the employee learns of the need for leave.
The completed application MUST be submitted to Human Resources once received by the immediate supervisor.
