FAQs / Am I eligible to take FML leave?

In order to be eligible for FML leave, you must be a regular staff or contingent II employee and have:

  • worked 1,040 hours during the 12-month period immediately prior to the start of your FML leave; and
  • worked for the University for at least 12 months* immediately prior to the start of your FML leave; and
  • an FTE of at least 50%.

*The 12 months of service are not required to be consecutive.  Employment periods preceding a break in service of no more than 7 years may be considered when determining whether you have worked for the University for at least 12 months.

If you are on approved sick leave at the time you meet the 12-month service requirement, all leave taken after you meet the 12-month service requirement will be designated as FML leave.
