Family Medical Leave Act and Americans with Disabilities Act
Family and Medical Leave (FMLA)
The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) is a federal law designed to help you preserve your job and benefits when you need time off from work to take care of a new child or deal with serious health situations involving your family or yourself. FMLA can help you be confident of your decisions as you balance family needs with your work schedule. You can take time off to attend to such critical life events without losing your employment and health insurance coverage.

Medical Leave of Absence
Qualified employees may apply for unpaid medical leave of absence or child rearing leave through the Human Resources Department.
On May 15, 2021, FMLASource began administering leaves of absences (FMLA) on behalf of Springfield Public Schools. SPS employees who had a pending FMLA request or open FMLA (active continuous or intermittent leave) at the time of the transition will proceed with FMLASource.
