The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal law which entitles eligible employees to unpaid, job protected leave, under qualifying circumstances, as follows: (1) for a qualifying health condition of the employee or a family member; (2) for the birth or adoption of a child; and (3) for specific purposes to family members of qualifying military service members. Employees may, at their discretion, elect to use accrued vacation leave, sick leave, and/or compensatory balances concurrently while on FMLA leave (as appropriate).

To qualify for FMLA leave, the employee must meet eligibility criteria, must submit a written request, and upon return to work must provide a medical release (as appropriate).

In the event an employee does not request FMLA leave for time off work for a qualifying health condition, LCSC will designate the employee’s absence as FMLA leave (as appropriate).

Any credits taken above the seven (7) credits in a semester or three (3) credits in the summer session will be paid at full price by the employee.

C. The employee’s job has first priority. In the event of conflicts between requests to take classes during scheduled working hours and the department’s ability to provide services, the supervisor has the authority and responsibility to approve, modify or deny the request.

D.  Reciprocal educational privileges allow LCSC employees (some also allow spouses) to take courses for reduced fees at other Idaho institutions.  Each institution has specific rules, so check with the institution you plan to attend for specifics.  University of Idaho no longer allows online classes.
