leave in an amount equal to the number of hours that he or she works, on average, over a two (2) week period –
this includes employees who are scheduled to work 35 hour per week as they are considered to be part-time
under the FFCRA) if the employee is unable to work, or telework, due to a reason listed below.
Emergency Family and Medical Leave Act Expansion: Employees who have been employed for at least thirty (30)
days prior to their leave request, may be eligible for up to two (2) weeks of unpaid and ten (10) weeks of partially
paid expanded family and medical leave where an employee is unable to work or telework under the State’s
Teleworking Policy due to a bona fide need for leave to care for the employee’s child if the child’s school or place
of care has been closed, or the child care provider of such child is unavailable, due to a public health emergency
declared by a Federal, State or local authority as a result of COVID-19.
