LeaveLink®: Reporting FMLA Absences in LeaveLink  

TO: All US-based AT&T Management and Bargained Employees including Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands

WHAT: Starting October 1, 2018, the time frame to submit FMLA leave requests in LeaveLink will be extended from 2 business days to 5 calendar days.  As in the past, if not submitted on a timely basis (within 5 calendar days), the request will automatically be denied. 

It is essential that employees submit a leave request through LeaveLink within 5 calendar days of returning to work for an unplanned absence.  Leave requests made beyond the 5-calendar day time period will be considered untimely and will not qualify for FMLA protection absent extenuating circumstances. 

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This policy change will only be applied to requests for FMLA submitted in LeaveLink after October 1, 2018.  Any FMLA leave requests submitted prior to October 1, 2018 will not be affected. 

ACTION: Informational ONLY
