The leave is technically both:
- The first 10 days of the public health emergency FMLA leave is unpaid, unless the employee uses their own leave accruals and/or are eligible for Emergency Sick Leave to use in order to be paid for the first 10 days.
- After that, the City will provide:
- Paid leave in an amount not less than two-thirds (2/3) the employee’s regular rate of pay (defined by Fair Labor Standards Act [“FLSA”]); and
- Based on the number of hours the employee would otherwise be scheduled to work for the City normally;
However, in no event will the paid-leave compensation exceed $200 per day or $10,000 total.
