Personal Medical Leave
Employees who are unable to work due to a serious health condition and either do not meet the requirements for FMLA leave or have exhausted their FMLA leave entitlement may request personal medical leave for up to 90 calendar days. To apply for personal medical leave, an employee should submit a request in writing to his or her Human Resources Client Partner and submit a physician's statement explaining his or her inability to work and the anticipated dates of absence due to the employee’s health condition. If the employee does not have a Human Resources Client Partner, the employee should submit the written request directly to Benefits Administration. Supervisors should never accept or retain medical or disability information.
The HR Client Partner should forward the written request to Benefits Administration for inclusion in the employee's benefits file along with the supporting medical documentation.
Employees are required to use their applicable accrued sick and annual time while on a personal medical leave.
If there are requests for personal medical leave over 90 days, Human Resources Client Partner should refer those requests to Benefits Administration for review.
