A. INSTRUCTIONS TO EMPLOYEE

The Company will provide eligible employees with up to 12 weeks of Emergency Family and Medical Leave (EFML) for a qualifying need related to a public health emergency. This is not an additional 12 weeks of leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”). Rather, it is an additional reason to use leave under the FMLA. If you already have used some FMLA leave within the last 12-months, then any remaining FMLA leave may be used for this new reason. If you already used all 12 weeks of your FMLA leave entitlement for other reasons within the last 12 months, then no additional leave is available for this new reason.

The leave under this policy is limited to circumstances where you are unable to work (including telework) due to your need to care for your minor child or child incapable of self-care because of a mental or physical disability because the child’s school or place of childcare has been closed or the child’s care provider is unavailable due to a public health emergency. Public health emergency means an emergency with respect to COVID-19 declared by a federal, state or local authority.

B. ELIGIBILITY

Emergency family and medical leave is available to all employees that have been employed by the Company for at least 30 calendar days before the leave is to begin.
