Wyoming FMLA

Difference from FMLA

While the federal FMLA defines " immediate family " as a spouse, child or parent, Wyoming's definition includes any stepparents, parents-in-law, stepchildren, children-in-law, siblings, half-siblings, step-siblings, siblings-in-law, grandparents, step-grandparents, grandparents-in-law and grandchildren.

Bereavement Leave

Wyoming employees are granted three regularly scheduled work days of bereavement leave upon being notified of the death of an immediate family member. This leave is only used for purposes associated with the death of the family member and shall be used before the use of any other leave authorized for this purpose.

Donated Leave

Employees with at least 80 hours of accrued sick leave are allowed to donate four to 16 hours of that leave per calendar year to one recipient who had an immediate and reasonable need for such assistance.

  • Donations between immediate family members who are state employees are not subject to the 16-hour maximum
  • Donors must notify their agency head in writing of the transfer, and the head can either approve or disapprove of it.
  • Donations can be made to employees in other agencies under the agency head's discretion.
  • Employees must deplete all annual and sick leave before using donated leave.
  • Unused donated sick leave will be returned to the original owner when the recipient returns to work or no longer needs it.
