FMLA and OFLA
If a resident/fellow takes FMLA or OFLA leave, the GME office must be notified in order to ensure that all necessary paperwork is completed. Please contact Kendra Seybert at 503-494-1079 or firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you know that you will be taking leave.
Visit the OHSU Human Resources page for details about FMLA.
The Federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Oregon Family Leave Act (OFLA) are laws that protect your employment status while time is taken for maternity/paternity responsibilities or to care for a family member. FMLA provides 12 weeks of protected leave with benefits after 12 months of employment. OFLA provides 12 weeks of protected leave after 6 months of employment, however benefits are only covered until paid leave is exhausted.
