What is the Family and Medical Leave Act?

There are two Family and Medical Leave Acts that apply to employment at Gallaudet University:

  1. D.C. Family and Medical Leave Act
  2. Federal Family and Medical leave Act

The Acts are essentially the same and assure employees JOB-PROTECTED, UNPAID LEAVE (i.e., the Acts simply assure employees of time off without fear of losing a job) for several specific purposes as long as certain conditions are met.

The Acts require Gallaudet to restore an employee to the position held when the leave commenced or to restore the employee to an equivalent position with equivalent pay, benefits, and other terms and conditions of employment. The Acts do not provide for the accrual or enhancement of seniority or employment benefits during the period of leave.
