Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993 is the federal law that requires employers to provide eligible employees with up to twelve (12) workweeks of unpaid, job-protected leave in a 12-month period for qualifying family and medical reasons. It is the policy of Montgomery County to comply with the provisions of the FMLA and the relevant regulations. The Office of Human Resources, Occupational Medical Services is responsible for processing all requests for FMLA related leaves for Montgomery County Departments.

Employees are eligible for FMLA if they have been employed by Montgomery County for at least one year and worked a minimum of 1,040 hours in the previous 12 months. For additional information, including regulations and forms necessary to apply, click on the appropriate links below.

The Sick Leave Bank (SLB) is designed to ease the financial impact of serious illness, accident or injury. Although not an exclusive list, typical usage would be for heart attack, cancer, serious automobile accident or major surgery. Serious illness is defined as being hospitalized, homebound under psychiatric care, temporarily totally disabled, and/or not able to perform the activities of daily living. The Bank is not intended to provide benefits to those members having surgery which is not medically necessary or for normal maternity leave.  For additional information, including Policy & Procedure documents and forms necessary to apply, click on the appropriate links below.
