Available for immediate download.

The Time Off Benefits: Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Policy is a policy that employers can use in their employee handbook, or as a standalone policy, which provides an overview of the time off benefit plans offered by the company for time away from work for serious personal health conditions, for the birth or adoption of a child, to care for an employee's spouse, child or parent, or other specific circumstances in accordance with the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 and applicable regulations, as amended. Additionally, this policy includes information on FMLA eligibility, FMLA leave entitlement, FMLA leave for eligible members of military families (which includes Reserve and National Guard), FMLA intermittent leave, FMLA leave notification, medical certifications, second medical opinions, medical re-certifications, fitness for work certifications, job restoration following FMLA leave, and extension of FMLA. Employers should review state-specific laws on Family and Medical Leaves of Absence in addition to federal requirements.
