The University of Florida values its employees and recognizes the challenges employees can face when it comes to balancing work and personal responsibilities, particularly when those responsibilities are related to the employee’s own health and the health of loved ones. The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) entitles eligible employees to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons. View the FMLA Policy. The UF HR Central Leave team is available to support you through the FMLA process, provide additional information, and address any questions you may have at any time. Contact Central Leave at or (352) 392-2477.
