FAMILY MEDICAL LEAVE ACT (FMLA):

In accordance with the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993, an eligible employee may be entitled to up to 12 work weeks of leave during any 12-month period for a qualifying event (qualifying events are listed in the guidelines linked below). Take note, if you are taking approved leave for a qualifying event for longer than three days, that leave must be granted under the FMLA guidelines, counted as part of the 12 weeks of granted leave, and special FMLA paperwork must be completed.  Read over the guidelines and paperwork required at UGA HR website, http://www.hr.uga.edu/fmla/fmla_intro.html .
