Basic leave entitlement
Employees may be eligible for up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave in 12 months. To qualify for this leave, an employee must:
- Have been employed by Nomad Health for at least 12 months
- Has worked at least 1,250 hours during the 12 months immediately preceding the commencement of the leave; and
- Be employed at a location where 50 or more employees are employed or a location where there are 50 or more employees within 75 miles of your location.
This leave consists of up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave over 12 months for any of the following reasons:
- The birth of a son or daughter and to care for such son or daughter.
- The placement of a son or daughter with you for adoption or foster care.
- To care for a spouse, son, daughter, or parent with a severe health condition.
- Your serious health condition makes you unable to perform your job.
- To handle various non-medical “qualifying exigencies” arising out of the fact that your spouse, son, daughter, or parent is a “military member” on “covered active duty” or on call to “covered active duty status.”
Service member family leave
Additional leave time may be provided for the spouse, son, daughter, parent, or next of kin of an injured or ill “covered service member” or “covered veteran” who is undergoing medical treatment, recovery, or therapy, is otherwise on outpatient status, or is otherwise on the temporary disability retired list, for a “serious injury or illness.”
An eligible employee who is the spouse, son, daughter, parent, or next of kin of a covered service member or covered veteran may be entitled to a total of 26 work weeks of unpaid leave during a single 12-month period to care for the injured or ill service member or veteran. Leave to care for an injured or ill-covered service member, when combined with other FMLA–qualifying leave, may not exceed 26 weeks in a single 12-month period.
For service member Family Leave, the 12-month period begins on the first day of the leave.
Employees required to be absent from employment for the purposes of military service, training, and/or examination in the Uniformed Services, as defined by law, will be granted a military leave of absence in accordance with the law, including the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) and any applicable state law. If you have questions about military leave or may need military leave, please get in touch with Nomad’s Director of Human Resources, who may be reached at hrdirector@Nomadhealth.com and (212) 401-6918.
Please note: You must provide 30 days advance notice for foreseeable leave. If 30 days' notice is not possible, you must provide it as soon as possible. Upon return from your leave, we will make a reasonable effort to reinstate you to your former position or an equivalent position. Your seniority and benefits will not continue accruing during any unpaid leave period. If you are returning from leave due to your own serious health condition, you must provide a note from your healthcare provider releasing you to work.
