Duration and Timing of Family and Medical Leave

​​An employee can take up to 12 workweeks of family and medical leave in a 12-month period. The employee can take all 12 weeks at once, or take leave in shorter increments of hours, days or weeks (see Intermittent Medical Leave below). An employee can also use leave to create a reduced work schedule, by fewer hours per day and counting those hours toward the 12-week entitlement. See ​ Calculating Weeks for Leave for more information.​
