Depending on the specific medical condition, this leave may be taken in blocks of time or intermittently. The FMLA/CFRA gives covered employees the right to take off up to 480 hours (12 weeks) per year in “reduced” or “intermittent” leave for a serious health condition. Reduced leave is a reduction in the employee’s normal hours per day or hours per week (e.g. reduction from 8 to 6 hours daily, or every Wednesday off). Intermittent leave can be taken at varying times of the day or week and may be taken in increments as small as one hour. All intermittent leaves require advance review and approval by the Disability Program Manager.
