    I'm supposed to hit top rate in September but I've been out on FMLA for 5 weeks. Does that delay when I hit top rate or will I still get that raise in September?

    Delay. You were on leave.

    Would it depend on which supplement they are under, or would it be the same nationwide?

    Ok good to know. That big pay pump will surely help considering I've been out for a while with no pay

    If you are on leave, it is like you are not there. Those 5 weeks are invisible.

    I guess I'll just have to wait & see. At least I'll be back to work regardless

    If the OP used vacation time during the 5 weeks, that would count.

    No, FMLA supersedes any contract.

    Yup delayed. Happened to a driver in my center this year. I couldn't believe it when he told me

    If you used FMLA it's probably delayed. If you used vacation, you'll hit top scale even while you're out. It happened to me this way. I took 5 weeks off for the birth of my child. 2 of the vacation checks came with the regular rate and the last 3 were at top scale. Huge difference between those.

    However later that year I used FMLA to spend another month and a half with my infant son. Luckily the state of California pays for those first 6 weeks of FMLA. However, the next year I didn't get as many weeks of vacation because they said I didn't earn days while I was out on FMLA. So it seems that time on FMLA counts for absolutely nothing. I guess that's fair.
