Family and Medical Leave

Sometimes you need to take an extended period of time away from work to care for a new baby (beyond your parental leave), care for a family member, or recover from an illness.

Under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), you may be eligible for 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave during a 12-month period. (In some circumstances, you may be eligible for up to 26 weeks of leave.) FMLA may be used for qualifying events listed below and can be taken for a continuous absence, intermittent absence, and/or a reduced schedule. FMLA runs concurrently with other applicable state, local, and/or company leave(s).

To be eligible for FMLA, you must have worked for the company for at least 12 months and for at least 1,250 hours during the year preceding the start of the leave. When FMLA is taken, FMLA eligibility resets on a rolling 12-month calendar.

What qualifies for FMLA?
  • Your own serious health condition that makes you unable to perform the functions of your job—runs concurrently with Short-Term Disability (STD).
  • A work-related injury or illness for which you have filed a workers’ compensation claim.
  • The need to care for your spouse, child, or parent with a serious health condition.
  • The birth of your child, and bonding with a newborn child within one year of birth.
  • The placement of a child with you for adoption or foster care, and bonding with the child within one year of the placement.
  • Qualifying urgent needs arising out of the fact that your spouse, qualified domestic partner, child, or parent is on active duty or called to active duty as a member of the U.S. Armed Forces, including the National Guard or Reserves.

While on a leave of absence, you may qualify for disability benefits. Learn more about partial wage replacement and FMLA.

Parental/Baby Bonding Leave

Regular, full-time employees can take up to eight weeks of 100% paid leave to bond with their new family member. This leave can be taken within the first year after a child’s birth, adoption, or foster care placement.

The amount of leave you can take depends on your length of service:

Eligibility Parental Leave Time
Less than six weeks of service Up to four weeks of paid leave
Six weeks or more of service Up to eight weeks of paid leave

Military Leave

To support your service to our country, you may be eligible for an approved leave of absence consistent with the requirements of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA).

Personal Leave

You may be able to take an unpaid leave of absence for nonmedical personal matters, including family matters not covered under family and medical leave.

A personal leave of absence is an unpaid, unprotected leave available to employees for necessary, individual reasons. During this leave, your benefits will end, and your position with Nutanix can’t be guaranteed upon your return. Be sure to consider your options carefully before applying for this type of leave.

Approval of personal leave is given at the discretion of management. Job performance, absenteeism, and departmental requirements are considered during the decision process.
