Can I take intermittent FMLA leave?

Yes. You can take intermittent leave in blocks of time or by reducing your weekly or daily schedule. FMLA leave may be taken intermittently whenever it is medically necessary to care for a seriously ill family member or because you are seriously ill and unable to work a full schedule. Intermittent leave may also be taken for a qualifying exigency or for covered service member leave. If you take such leave, you must make a reasonable effort to schedule such leave so as not to unduly disrupt university operations.
