Temporary Disability Leave (TDL) can provide up to 180 calendar days of unpaid, job-protected leave for eligible certified employees who are unable to work for an extended period of time because of a mental or physical disability of a temporary nature. 

    • The medical need for leave and the duration of leave must be certified by a healthcare provider. 
    • TDL runs concurrently with FML (if applicable), and any paid leave that you have.


    Full-time employees whose positions require certification from the State Board for Educator Certification are eligible for TDL.
