Hackensack Meridian Health team members are eligible to take leave to care for a family member or covered service member under federal and state law. In most cases, team members must have completed at least one year of service with Hackensack Meridian Health, worked at least 1,000 hours during the preceding 12-month period, and declared intent to return to work after the leave. Team members are eligible for up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave during a 12 to 24-month period, depending on the interaction between state and federal law and the team member’s individual circumstances. Eligibility for benefits during the leave, length of leave, and other conditions depend upon the circumstances of the leave and other qualifying factors.
