Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA Leave)

Employees are granted up to 12 work weeks of leave in a 12 month period for certain family and medical reasons. The employee is required to use all accrued paid leave toward the FMLA entitlement before being authorized leave without pay. Family members are limited to the employee, spouse, children and the employee’s parents.

When Eligible: Eligibility starts after 12 months of employment with the State of Kansas and the employee has worked at least 1250 hours in the 12 months immediately preceding the date FMLA leave begins.

Who Pays: The university pays the employee’s salary if the employee is in paid leave status; otherwise, the employee is on leave without pay.
