Caregiver Leave

You can take up to two weeks paid caregiver leave when you care for eligible family members such as your spouse, child or parents. If you have or adopt a child, you can use caregiver leave for additional bonding time after your parental leave is exhausted.

You’re eligible for caregiver leave if you’ve worked at Rockwell Automation for 12 months, you’re scheduled to work 20 or more hours per week, and you have Federal Family and Medical Leave (FMLA) available to use. The care you provide must be for an eligible family member—not for yourself.

Caregiver leave runs concurrently with FMLA. Your caregiver leave entitlement is created when you request and are approved for FMLA. After your leave is approved, you record time off like you record vacation days using the Caregiver Leave code.
