• When Absence is Necessary

    Are you in need of a leave of absence? Do you wonder if you are Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) eligible? What is considered FMLA ineligible? Below you will find all Williamson County Schools (WCS) information pertaining to taking a leave of absence.

  • Employees who have worked for the employer for at least 12 months and have worked a total of 1,250 hours within the 12 month period are FMLA eligible.

    Example: Full-time employee was hired August 2, 2017 and has worked all year. Employee requests a leave of absence with an effective start date of August 3, 2018. The employee is FMLA eligible because the employee worked the full year.

    If you are FMLA Ineligible, you will need to fill out the FMLA Ineligible packet that is specific to your leave.

    If you are unsure if you are FMLA Eligible, or if have any additional leave questions, please contact our HR Leaves Coordinator or (615) 472-4051.
