FMLA Requirements


Employees must qualify for leave under the FMLA before such leave can be granted; two criteria must be met:

  1. Must have a total of at least 12 months of state service (employment periods preceding a break in service of more than seven [7] years are not required to be counted); and
  2. Must have physically worked 1,250 hours with the state within the 12 months prior to the need for FMLA leave.

Note: Student employees, wage employees, and faculty are eligible for FMLA leave if the above requirements are met.
