[COVID-19] HR employee FAQ - Can I use the COVID-19 leave for my current Family Medical Leave I have on file?
This FAQ provides information on how employees can use their Family Medical Leave during the COVID-19 pandemic.
If an FML or leave is not related to the COVID-19 pandemic you would not be eligible to use the COVID-19 leave and would need to continue to use your sick leave, or other paid leave available to you.
COVID-19 leave is intended to be used when employees are unable to perform their assigned duties due to the COVID-19 pandemic or the reason an employee is unable to work is directly related to COVID-19. This includes but is not limited to: employees who are unable to work remotely, diagnosed of COVID-19 or experiencing symptoms and seeking a diagnosis, caring for an immediate family member who has a diagnosis of COVID-19 or experiencing symptoms and seeking diagnosis, caring for immediate family member that has been quarantined or isolation order to self-quarantine or child/elder care due to school/day care closures due to COVID-19.
