Medical Leave under the Family & Medical Leave Act (both federal and state) can be taken in parts. So, this means you don't have to take it all at once. When you plan to take leave intermittantly, you should be approval from your employer in advance so they know when you are taken leave, and can prepare for you internittant absence from work. Also, you should make sure that you keep good records of your leave to avoid confusion about how much leave to have left. Under the federal Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA) you can take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave over a 12 month period. Under the Connecticut FMLA you can take more leave (16 weeks) but the act only applies to large employers who have 75 or more employees.
