Illness in the Family Leave (FMLA)

Talk to your supervisor to request permission to use Sick Leave.

For more information about Illness in the Immediate Family Leave, contact the Leaves Office at 889-4865.

Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) will be granted to employees who have worked for APS for at least twelve (12) months and who have worked at least 1250 hours in the 12 months prior to the leave request date.  FMLA is limited to 12 weeks of unpaid leave per rolling calendar year.  Intermittent leave will be addressed according to FMLA Law.  For more information, see

Up to three (3) days of an employee’s sick leave may be used by the employee per incident for any illness of the employee's family or birth of a child to an employee. Any illness would be an illness requiring treatment by a physician. Illness in the Family Leave will be counted against an employee's FMLA entitlement.

Extended Leaves Policy

All leaves of ten (10) consecutive work days or less must be requested through and approved by the employee’s principal or supervisor. Extended leave of more than ten (10) consecutive days, with or without pay, must be requested through the Human Resources Leaves Office. Employees must complete the required Leave Forms and receive the necessary approval before the leave requested may be taken.

When an employee becomes ill or is injured on the job, sick leave begins at the time of inability to continue work, to the nearest half-hour. An employee, who is already on annual leave, personal leave or leave without pay, including parental leave, may not be eligible to use sick leave benefits.

While on an approved leave, an employee may not volunteer or perform any duties for the APS District or utilize APS property for personal use.
