More FMLA Details
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) allows you to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave a year to care for yourself or a family member, including a new child. In general, you’re eligible if you’ve worked for Rockwell Automation for a year (with 1,250 hours) and haven’t used your 12 weeks for another reason.
FMLA is an unpaid leave. However, you may choose to take vacation or holiday pay during your FMLA time. If you decide to use vacation or holiday pay, your HR representative must route a ticket to the time administrator to enter the vacation time in SAP for you. NOTE: If a Company-paid holiday occurs during the FMLA time, you will not be paid for that day. When you return to work, your HR representative or manager must send a request for holiday payout via the HRSC ticketing system to payroll.
Health Benefits During Unpaid FMLA
If you take unpaid time off under FMLA, you will be billed for your share of the health benefit premiums. If you don’t pay your benefit premiums, your enrollment may default to no coverage when you return to work.
