Procedure No.: 40.054 Page No.: 1 of 1 Date Issued: 01/10/02 Issued By: Gary North
The law sets forth requirements for notice and certification of the need for FMLA leave. It protects Ohio University employees who request or take FMLA leave, and it imposes certain record keeping requirements on Ohio University. The purpose of this policy is to publish information about University and employee rights and obligations under the FMLA.
The manual addresses the substantive and procedural rights and responsibilities of the FMLA. A copy of this manual will be distributed to each administrative department of the University. A copy will also be available at the Ohio University Library in the Reference Department. Upon request to University Human Resources, employees may receive a copy of the FMLA manual at no charge to the employee or obtain a copy of the manual or portions thereof from the FMLA web site.
Individual administrative departments are responsible for the management and record keeping requirement of the FMLA with assistance from University Human Resources. Pursuant to Ohio University Policies and Procedures, other leaves of absence may be available to the employee upon exhaustion of their FMLA (reference policy 41.128 and #40.033).
University Human Resources, in consultation with the Office of Legal Affairs, is responsible for the overall enforcement of this policy.
