Family Leave

The Association provides to eligible employees a family leave of absence without pay under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), to take time from their work duties to fulfill family obligations due to a serious health condition of a spouse, parent, child or other related concerns such as, but not limited to, childbirth, adoption, placement of a foster child or next of kin of a current member of the Armed Forces, including National Guard, or Reserves with serious injury or illness.

Military Leave

Under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) a military leave of absence will be granted for employees who are absent from work due to service in the U.S. uniformed services with partial pay for two-weeks training assignments and shorter absences.  The employee will be paid the difference between their normal base compensation and the pay received while on military duty (not including expense pay) with military pay verification data.

Pregnancy-Related Absence

The Association will not discriminate against any employee who request a leave of absence for medical disabilities associated with pregnancy.  Requests will be evaluated in accordance with the medical leave policy provisions in the Employee Handbook and all applicable federal and state laws.
