How Much Time Can I Take?

Ozaukee County uses a rolling 12 month period, not calendar year.

The employee can take 10 weeks of leave under the Wisconsin FMLA and 12 weeks under the federal FMLA, which are run concurrently.

Federal FMLA is a total of 12 weeks for any condition that meets the FMLA criteria.

State FMLA time must be used as follows:

Six weeks for the birth or adoption of a child

Two weeks to care for a covered family member or
domestic partner who has a serious health condition; and

Two weeks for the employees own serious health condition.

NOTE:  The employee's accrued hours, Sick, vacation, floating holiday will be used first for FMLA leave, before granting unpaid time off.
