(DECA Legal Policy)To be eligible for leave under the Family Medical Leave Act, you must have worked for Midlothian ISD for at least 12 months and at least 1,250 hours in the 12 months preceding the need for leave, and be employed at a worksite at which Midlothian ISD employs at least 50 Midlothian ISD employees within a 75-mile radius.
You must use any accrued leave during your unpaid Family Medical Leave covered absence. Midlothian ISD requires you to use Family Medical Leave concurrently with paid leave and temporary disability leave, if applicable. Once all earned leave is exhausted, you will be docked for any remaining days absent.
All part-time employees who do not meet eligibility requirements for Family Medical Leave as a result of the limited number of hours required for their position and who have been employed for one school year shall be eligible to participate in the District Medical Leave Plan (DEC Local Policy). The District Medical Leave Plan grants part-time employees the opportunity to receive up to six weeks of unpaid leave concurrently with any other leave to which they may be entitled under other policy provisions.
Employees who expect to be absent for an extended period of time exceeding 5 consecutive days should email the Human Resources Manager, Kelly Golden, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 469.856.5012 for information on applicable leave benefits.
