The Town will comply with the requirements of the federal Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA), as may be amended, which allows FMLA-eligible employees up to twelve (12) weeks of leave time each year for specific reasons stated in the Act and up to 26 workweeks during a single 12-month period for military caregiver leave as described in the Act.  FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act) Leave may consist of either or both paid and unpaid leave; when an employee qualifies for FMLA Leave, the Town may require that paid leave be designated as FMLA Leave. 

To be eligible for FMLA leave, an employee must have been employed by the Town at least 12 months and provided at least 1,250 hours of service to the Town during the previous 12-month period.
