Intermittent Leave of Absence
Intermittent leaves of absence are used for periodic time off due to a serious health condition to care for yourself, a spouse, a child, or a parent. Instead of a continuous leave, an intermittent leave allows you to take time off as needed.
Use intermittent leave for:
- Doctor appointments
- Out-patient medical procedures
- Episodic flare-ups of a condition
- Providing patient care to an incapacitated family member
To apply for an intermittent leave of absence:
Intermittent leaves are approved for up to six months. At that time, if the leave is still needed, the DMO will request that you have the treating physician recertify the leave.
