With cold weather right around the corner, people around the District are lining up to get their flu shots. But did you know that DC law has one of the most generous employee sick leave policies in the nation?
What is FMLA leave?
The federal Family and Medical Leave Act allows qualifying employees to take unpaid leave for medical reasons. Qualified employees may take leave because of their own illnesses or to take care of a sick family member. However, DC has its own FMLA that gives employees additional rights. The DC FMLA provides more weeks of leave to more people:
Do I qualify for DC FMLA leave?
You may be entitled to take DC FMLA leave if you meet all of these requirements:
- You work for an employer in DC that has more than 20 employees.
- You worked for your employer for at least one year with no break in service. Holidays and sick and personal leave don’t count as a break in service. You don’t have to work for a continuous one-period during the year immediately before FMLA leave. However, the continuous period must have occurred sometime within the past seven years.
- You worked at least 1,000 hours during the past 12 months. Paid leave for holidays, illness and vacation, as well as military leave, count towards the hourly requirement.
