Requesting STD and Family Medical Leave (FMLA) through MATRIX
The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides eligible employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid, protected leave to care for themselves and/or to provide care for eligible family members with a serious health condition. To be eligible for FMLA, employees must have been employed with NSU for 12 months and worked a minimum of 1,250 hours.
Matrix Absence Management administers Family Medical Leaves, Medical Leaves of Absence, and determines eligibility for payment under NSU's Short Term Disability program.
After requesting leave and completing the intake process with Matrix, eligible employees will receive a comprehensive leave packet in the mail informing them of their eligibility, rights, and responsibilities under the FMLA and NSU policy.
