Paid Medical Leave A c crual Paid medical leave a ccrual begins on March 29, 2019 , or upon commencement of the employee’s employment, whichever is later . Paid medical leave is accrued at a rate of 1 hour for every 35 actual hour s wo rked ; however, an employer is not required to a l low accrual of over 1 hour in a calendar week or more than 40 hours in a benefit year. A benefit year is any consecutive 12 - month period used by an employer to calcu late an eligible employe e’s benefits. E mplo yees can carry over up to 40 hours of unused ac c rued paid medical leave from one benefit year to the next; however, employers are not required to allow employees to use more than 40 hours in a single benefit year. An emp loyer may provide the total amou nt o f pai d medical leave all at once by providing a t least 40 hours at the beginning of the ben efit year or on the date that the individual becomes eligible during the benefit year on a prorated basis. If an employer adopts this practice , it does not have to p ermit employees to carry over unused leave to t h e next benefit year.
