Types of Leaves of Absences

All Leave of Absence requests for time away from work must be first routed through The Benefits Team. If you have a need to take time away from work for one of the reasons outlined below, you may be eligible to take a leave of absence. 

Based upon your eligibility, your leave may be granted under Federal, and/or State Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and/or California Family Medical Act (CFRA). Military leaves are granted under federal law. If you are not eligible for FMLA/CFRA leave, you will be notified. Learn more about FMLA.
