Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

Because life’s occurrences for employees and their families must be considered, the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) became a federal law requiring certain employers to allow eligible employees to take up to 12 workweeks, and in some military circumstances 26 workweeks, of unpaid job-protected leave during a single 12-month period for various health and family-related reasons.

Leave of absence benefits are available to you depending on a number of elements in your employment status here at SUNY Geneseo. These elements include: your employer, your bargaining unit, your pay basis, your work schedule, and/or your length of service.

SUNY Geneseo is pleased to help employees through the FMLA process.  Below are references to assistant you in requesting your medical leave of absence.  For any assistance, please contact Rebecca Farrington, Human Resources Specialist, at 585.245.5616 or farrington@geneseo.edu.
