§ 2-219.08. Accrual.  

Latest version.
  • (a) During leave, the FMLA does not require accrual of employment benefits, such as vacation pay, sick days, seniority, etc. Accordingly, during FMLA leave, accrual of benefits and seniority shall be on the same basis as for any other unpaid leave of absence. Pension benefits will be determined in accordance with DOL rules. Employment benefits to which an employee may be entitled on the day on which the family and medical leave of absence begins will not be lost because of such leave, except for those paid leave days substituted for leave taken under this policy as described above. Upon return from FMLA leave, employees are entitled to any changes in benefit plans not dependent upon seniority or accrual during the leave period. (See section 2-221.05.)

    (b) Employees will not be disqualified from bonuses based upon attendance or safety for which they qualified prior to leave because of the taking of FMLA leave.
