Family Medical Leave (FMLA)

Are you facing the birth of a child? Care for an injured service member? Do you have a qualifying exigency arising out of the military service of a covered family member? Adoption & foster care? Care for your own serious health condition? Care for a child, spouse or parent with serious health conditions?

FMLASource -  Administration of FMLA Leave

Family Medical Leaves will be administered by FMLASource on behalf of Wayne State University.

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993 is a federal law which helps employees balance their work responsibilities with their family and medical needs. The Act sets national standards for employers when providing leave for such purposes.

Any time you are absent from work with an FMLA qualifying event:

  • Contact your Supervisor, Business Manager, or Designated Representative
  • Call 1-877-GO2-FMLA (1-877-462-3652), log onto to start your leave process.
  • You will need your Access ID (e.g. zz1222)
