When an employee submits a request, the supervisor/manager and departmental Human Resource Representative are immediately notified via e-mail.

Before entering Family Medical Leave information, verify if the employee should be placed on paid or unpaid leave.

Paid Leave:  The employee has unused, accrued time applicable to the type of leave. You need to verify the date at which the applicable accrued time will be exhausted and the employee leave time must be changed to unpaid leave.

Unpaid Leave: The employee has exhausted all accrued time applicable to the type of leave. These employees also do not accrue time while they are on unpaid leave. If eligible, they may be paid through Emory's Long Term Disability Insurance (60% pay). While on unpaid leave, they also are responsible for and billed for the employee contribution to the benefits deductions.
