Work Leave for Family or Medical Purposes

Leave under DCFMLA may be taken in blocks of time, intermittently, and in certain circumstances, at a reduced schedule. 
Employees can also use any accrued time instead of unpaid leave.
The employer may require medical certification and reasonable prior notice when applicable. 	
Filing a Complaint of a Violation

An employee is eligible under the Act if she or he has been employed by the employer for at least one year without 
a break in service, and worked at least 1,000 hours during the 12 month period immediately preceding the requested

The District government is considered a single employer. The above eligibility requirements can be met by considering 
employment at more than one District agency.
