Length of FMLA leave

You get 12 weeks of family and medical leave per 12-month period. We use a rolling 12-month period to determine your FMLA balance.

Your leave may be taken as a single block of time or, when medically necessary, on an intermittent basis or as a reduced work schedule.

Calculating your available leave

Step 1: Determine the date you wish to start your leave.

Example: March 10, 2016

Step 2: Count back 12 months from that start date.

Example: March 11, 2015

Step 3: Add up the FMLA time already taken during that 12-month period.

Example: You took two weeks in April 2015 and three more weeks in January 2016. Total used in the past 12 months: five weeks.

Step 4: Subtract the amount of time already taken from the 12 weeks allowed. The remainder is the amount of time you can take for your current leave.

Example: 12 weeks minus 5 weeks = 7 weeks available
