(A) The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA), being 29 U.S.C. §§ 2611 et seq., does apply to all public agencies, including state, local and federal employers. However, employee eligibility is as follows:
(B) To be eligible for FMLA benefits, an employee must:
(1) Work for a covered employer;
(2) Have worked for the employer for a total of 12 months;
(3) Have worked at least 1,250 hours over the previous 12 months; and
(4) Work at a location in the United States or in any territory or possession of the United States where at least 50 employees are employed by the employer within 75 miles.
(C) The county shall display an informational poster in the work place that informs employees of the provisions of the FMLA of 1993.
(D) The county has elected to utilize the rolling 12-month period measured backward provision for FMLA. This procedure utilizes a 12-month period, during which each time an employee takes FMLA leave, the remaining leave entitled would be the balance of the 12 weeks which has not been used in the preceding 12 months.
(E) FMLA leave shall run concurrently with workers’ compensation leave.
(F) Employees electing to utilize FMLA will use all accrued leave time (vacation, sick and compensatory) during their absence. Once accrued leave has been exhausted, the remaining FMLA time will be leave without pay.
