How much leave may a husband and wife take if they are both employed by HCPSS?

Spouses employed by the same employer are limited in the amount of leave they may take for the birth and care of a child or placement of a child for adoption or foster care to a combined total of 12 work weeks (or 26 work weeks if leave to care for a covered service member with a serious injury or illness is also used). Leave for birth and care, or placement for adoption or foster care, must conclude within 12 months of birth or placement.

Example: If spouses are employed by HCPSS and the wife takes 10 weeks FMLA for the birth of a child, and the husband takes 2 weeks of FMLA to care for the child, then the husband will still have 10 weeks of FMLA available to take for his own personal illness and the wife will have 2 weeks available for her own personal illness, if needed.
