Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA)

The Family and Medical Leave act of 1993 provides up to 12 weeks of unpaid job-protected leave to eligible employees for certain family and medical reasons. Full-time and part-time employees are eligible after one year of service at SUNY Oswego. Employees must have worked at least 1250 hours over the previous 12 months.

If an employee is enrolled in health, dental, vision, prescription and/or life insurance coverage, those benefits will continue during the FMLA leave at the same cost the employee would pay if in active work status.

An employee may elect to use accruals as appropriate for part of the FMLA leave.

Upon return from FMLA leave, most employees must be restored to original or equivalent positions with equivalent pay, benefits and other employment terms.
