. No. The County’s FMLA leave policy does not provide for a full-time employee to use intermittent FMLA leave for child care purposes. Rather, the County’s policy requires that FMLA leave taken for child care must be taken consecutively, in a block of time, and not used intermittently. There is no requirement, however that this block of FMLA time for child care be taken immediately. It can be used anytime during the child’s first year.
