chart showing FMLA for complications prior to birth of a child

 

The following resources will help you move through the FMLA/Tennessee Maternity Leave Act (TMLA) process for complications prior to birth of a child. If you have questions about the FMLA process, contact your FMLA Coordinator at 615.322.7441 or email fmlaprocessing.vumc@vanderbilt.edu.

Step 1: FMLA Request and Receive Eligibility Determination

You may complete the online Medical Leave Request Form to request FMLA for complications due to pregnancy for you or your spouse.

  • If you have already applied for "Birth of Child" you still need to request leave for complications.

Step 2: Complete Medical Certification Form

The FMLA Coordinator will provide this form upon submission of your FMLA request and eligibility determination. This form must be submitted to Human Resources.

Step 3: FMLA/TMLA Approval or Denial

The FMLA Coordinator will provide your leave approval letter and additional materials upon completion of steps 1 and 2 above.

  • If you have already applied for "Birth of Child" your FMLA Coordinator will send a revised approval letter that includes both the complications prior to birth and the leave for the birth of your child.
