What Is FMLA?

Vanderbilt University Medical Center recognizes that during an employee's career, circumstances may arise which require prolonged or intermittent absence from work due to medical reasons. VUMC provides eligible employees the necessary provisions under State and Federal law in regards to medical leaves of absences.

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal law that provides employees the right to take a leave of absence for personal or family medical reasons and leave for military families while maintaining job protection.

An employee may start the application process for Family Medical Leave by completing the online Medical Leave Request form. In the event an employee is not eligible for FMLA, this same form will start the application process for a Non-FMLA Medical Leave.
