What you need to know
Some health conditions may require that you miss work periodically, such as for ongoing medical treatments. An intermittent leave specifies the frequency and duration of the expected absences, meaning how often you may be away from work, and the length of each absence (for example, once each week for up to two days). In some cases, a leave could also specify reduced hours.
If you're not FMLA-eligible, you won't be eligible for an intermittent leave under the leave of absence policy. However, you may submit a request to the Accommodation Service Center for consideration of intermittent time away from work under the accommodation in employment policy. The Accommodation Service Center will review your request and determine eligibility for the request. Intermittent accommodation approvals are for your only health condition only.
If you are returning to work after a period of short-term disability and need to miss work periodically for reasons related to your disability, your intermittent absences may be approved under your prior disability claim.
Sign up for 2-step verification at work before your LOA for quick, secure access to your claims, benefits, and payroll information while you’re away.
What you need to do while on intermittent LOA
Report your absences: You'll need to report any scheduled time for your intermittent leave to Sedgwick and your manager – even if you simply arrive late or leave early.
Report any scheduled time missed due to your intermittent leave:
- Through mySedgwick , or
- By calling Sedgwick at 800-492-5678 at any time. To help you report the absence to Walmart, Sedgwick's automated phone system will also transfer you to your facility or to the associate information line, if applicable.
IMPORTANT: Keep in mind that you must report an absence to Sedgwick for an intermittent leave within two calendar days of the absence or the absence will be denied by Sedgwick and you may be held accountable.
