(A) The city will provide eligible employees with up to a total of 12 work weeks of leave during any rolling 12-month period measured backward from the date leave is used for any of the following reasons:
(1) Due to the birth, placement or adoption of a child and to care for such child;
(2) Because of a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the functions of his or her position; or
(3) To care for the employee’s spouse, child or parent who suffers from a serious health condition. The employee must substitute any paid sick days or accrued paid vacation leave towards the 12 weeks of leave. If paid sick days or vacation leave is substituted for family and medical leave, the city will notify the employee that the paid leave is being counted toward the employee’s family and medical leave entitlement.
(B) If the employee is injured in connection with work and is receiving time off and benefits under state workers’ compensation laws, then the period of time which he or she is absent from work will be charged concurrently against his or her 12-week family and medical leave entitlement. Family and medical leave is only available to employees who have been employed for at least 12 months and have worked at least 1,250 hours during the previous 12-month period. Family and medical leave is not available to part-time or temporary employees or to employees who work at a worksite at which there are fewer than 50 employees within a 75-mile radius.
