Change to Requesting a Leave of Absence

News from January 31, 2020

If you need to apply for Family Medical Leave (FML), Short-Term Disability (STD), or Paid Parental Leave (PPL), be sure to review this process change before filing your paperwork.

Effective February 1, 2020, all new requests for FML, STD, and PPL leaves will be reviewed and approved by the FMLA Administrator within the Division of Human Resources. Broadspire, a third-party administrator, will no longer handle the review and approval process. 

The current application process through Workday will remain the same and you can continue to request leave through the self-service portal. Review this tip sheet for the steps to requesting leave.

All paperwork will now be submitted to the FMLA Administrator, instead of Broadspire.

This change applies to new leaves beginning on or after February 1, 2020. If you are currently on an approved FML, PPL, or STD leave, there will be no changes to your approval. If your request for a FML, PPL, or STD leave is pending as of February 1, 2020, Broadspire will continue to administer your leave request until the end date of that leave. If you have any questions about a pending leave request, please contact Broadspire at 866-357-1122.
