The   Paid  Medical  Leave  Act ,  2018  Pu blic  Act   33 8 ,  as  amended   by  2018   Public  Act  369 ,   effective  March  29,  201 9,  covers

Railway Labor Act   and   Railroad Une mplo yment Insur ance Act ,   i ndividual s   employed by an employer for 25 weeks or fewer in a

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.     ( See section  3 of   t he   Paid Medical Leave Act ,  2018  Pu blic  Act   33 8 ) .

used  in  1 - hour  increments  unless  the  employer  has  a  different  increment  p olicy  set  forth  in  writing  in  an  employee 
handbook  or  other  employee  benefit  docu ment .   Employees  must  follow  the  employer’s  usual   and  customary  notice, 
procedur a l,  and  documentation  requireme nt s   for  requesting  leave.  The  employee  must  be  allowed  at  least  3   days  to
