Medical leave is a policy which protects an employee’s job while they are out for a qualifying medical reason. CFISD employees may qualify for one of two types of medical leave, either Family Medical leave (FMLA) or Temporary Disability (TD) leave.
Employees must meet specific criteria (outlined below) to qualify for FML.
The second medical leave program available to CFISD employees is Temporary Disability (TD).
- TD is NOT to be confused with Disability Insurance.
- TD is medical leave coverage and Disability Insurance is an elected benefit.
- Employees who do not qualify for FML may qualify for TD, if the employee has their own medical need and meets the criteria.
FMLA and TD leave are unpaid leave programs. The district requires employees to use compensatory time and paid leave concurrently with FMLA/TD leave. You must notify CFISD Insurance within 31 days of childbirth to add a child.
Consult a Benefits Specialist for any questions regarding insurance benefits (medical, disability etc.).
