The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) is a United States federal law requiring covered employers to provide employees job-protected unpaid leave for qualified medical and family reasons. These reasons include personal or family illness, military service, family military leave, pregnancy, adoption, or the foster care placement of a child.
It is your responsibility to submit the FMLA forms to the company after the first day of reported absence.
On February 1, 2020, Verizon is changing the FMLA and Leave administrator to Sedgwick. Sedgwick already administers Verizon’s disability claims. Here's what will happen: For open claims filed through January 31, 2020:
• Effective February 1, submit paperwork to Sedgwick; prior to this, all members should follow current process. • Claims will be automatically transferred to Sedgwick. • Sedgwick will send you a letter outlining any actions you might need to take. For new claims beginning February 1, 2020: • Requirements for initiating a FMLA claim remain the same, beginning with a call-out to your supervisor or absence administrator. • The current fax number will be offline effective February 1, 2020. Use the new fax number for supporting documents: (859) 264-4384. • Information about Sedgwick will be posted on About You on February 1 from the Corporate Web. • New forms will come from Sedgwick upon claim initiation and will be barcoded to provide faster claim review. All prior FMLA forms should be discarded.
