FMLA requires Van Buren Public School District to provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid or paid, job-protected leave to eligible employees for certain family and medical reasons. Employees are eligible if they have worked for Van Buren Public Schools for at least one (1) year and for 1,250 hours over the previous 12 months. The method used for calculations is a “rolling” 12-month period measured backward from the date an employee uses any FMLA leave. The FMLA leave begins on the employee’s first day off work. The complete FMLA regulations are located in all buildings and copies can be obtained from the Human Resources office.
