 If you have been assigned by your supervisor to work on campus or work remotely, this ACT would not apply as teleworking hours are considered work hours and leave would not be applicable.    Please check with your supervisor about actually working versus the use of leave prior to contacting Human Resources with regard to this Act.

You may contact Charlene Abbott, Director of Human Resources, at cabbott@mcneese.edu to get specific details related to filing for FMLA or FMLA expansion.
