Paid and Unpaid Time Off
Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- In 1993, the federal government passed the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). FMLA
enables eligible employees to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave for certain family
and medical events and allows them to return to their job or an equivalent position
after the leave has expired.
This law was enacted because many employers had not been sensitive to work/family
situations. Mott, on the other hand, has a long history of recognizing the importance
of balancing work and family as evidenced by its liberal leave policies. To see the
College’s complete FMLA policy and for what type of situations are covered follow
