Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

Northeast Alabama Community College complies with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which allows eligible employees to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave during a twelve-month period for one or more of the following reasons:

  • the birth and care of a newborn child of the employee;
  • the placement with the employee of a son or daughter for adoption or foster care;
  • to care for a spouse, son, daughter, or parent with a serious health condition;
  • to take medical leave when the employee is unable to work because of a serious health condition; or
  • for qualifying exigencies arising out of the fact that the employee’s spouse, son, daughter, or parent is on active duty or call to active duty status as a member of the National Guard or Reserves in support of a contingency operation.

The FMLA also includes a special leave entitlement that permits eligible employees to take up to 26 weeks of leave to care for a covered service member during a single 12-month period.

Details of employee rights and responsibilities under the FMLA are posted in each building on campus, at the NACC Salon Institute, and at the link below.
