Parental and Family Medical Leave Handbook Statement: Rhode Island
We recognize that an employee may need to be absent from work for an extended period of time for family and/or medical reasons. Accordingly, the Company will grant time off to employees in accordance with the requirements of the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (Fed-FMLA) and the Rhode Island Parental and Family Medical Leave Act (RIPFMLA). If both the fed-FMLA and RIPFMLA apply, the leave provided by each will count against the employee's entitlement under both laws and must be taken concurrently. An employee who is eligible for leave under only one of these laws will receive benefits in accordance with that law only.
