Short Notice FMLA Calls

If you have been denied FMLA for any reason please contact a grievance representative to assist you through the process.  Please note that the reference to “the employer’s usual notice and procedural requirements”  below is the same as any other 2 hour sick call procedure.


CFR 825.303 in part states when utilizing unforeseeable FMLA, as soon as practicable you must provide notice to the Company about your leave. 825.303(c).  Notice may be given by the employee’s spokesperson (e.g., spouse, adult family member, or other responsible party), if the employee is unable to do so personally.  If an employee does not comply with the employer’s usual notice and procedural requirements, and no unusual circumstances justify the failure to comply, FMLA-protected leave may be delayed or denied.

If you were assessed a Missed Trip/Trip Failure because you were unable to call in two hours prior in accordance with Company policy please follow the appeal procedures below:

  • Email an appeal to
  • Place Missed Trip/Trip Failure in the subject line.
  • You don’t have to provide any details regarding your medical condition.
  • You do need to provide details as to how your medical condition prevented you from meeting the callout period.
  • The appeal should be sent within 30 days from the date of the Missed Trip/Trip Failure in question.
  • Always cc your grievance representative(s) in your appeal.

Please email your appeal as soon as possible and be aware of your grievance timeline requirements as well.  If you have a question about filing a grievance or the grievance timeline please contact your Local grievance representative(s).
