The Family Medical Leave Act is a federal provision that enables qualified employees to take unpaid, job-protected leave, with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave. In Green Local Schools, up to six weeks of accrued leave (sick, personal and vacation) run concurrently with family and medical leave. When the employee returns to work from FMLA leave, he or she will be restored to the same job or a similar job.

Qualification Through Absence Patterns
Absence patterns often signal that an employee may meet the eligibility requirements for leave under the FMLA. If absence patterns are identified, the District may contact the employee to determine if leave under the FMLA should be considered.
- a pattern of scheduled or non-scheduled sick leave (Mondays and Fridays; Thursdays and Fridays; every Wednesday; absence(s) weekly or every other week, etc.)
- a pattern of recurrent or excessive absences due to illness (3-4 day blocks of time, for example)
