Family and Medical Leave
Our family care leave program enables an employee to take unpaid leave to care for a seriously ill family member or child within the first year of birth, adoption or foster care placement. Employees may use medical leave for their own serious health conditions, which will run concurrently with the short-term disability benefits.
