Frequently Asked Questions Pay & Leave

How many hours of leave is an employee working two part-time Federal jobs entitled to use under the Family and Medical Leave Act?

Under the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA), a covered employee is entitled to use a total of 12 administrative workweeks of unpaid leave (leave without pay) during any 12-month period for certain family and medical needs. For a part-time employee, the 12 administrative workweeks of unpaid leave is calculated on an hourly basis and equals 12 times the average number of hours in the employee's regularly scheduled administrative workweek. An employee working two part-time positions may use only the amount of FMLA leave earned in each part-time position for absences from that position.
