Expand/Contract Questions and Answers

Is the City Attorney available for personal use/counsel?
A:
No, unless there is a legality issue regarding you as a City employee or your department.
How do I know if I'm eligible for Family Medical Leave (FML)?
A:
An eligible employee may be any full or part-time employee who has been employed for at least the previous 12 consecutive months and has worked at least 1250 hours within the last 12 months.  In order to qualify for FML, it must be requested within 30 days of the date FML is needed unless it's an emergency situation.  In addition to the 30 day requirement, your physician must complete the Physicians Certification form to see if it meets the criteria of a serious health condition.  Please contact  Human Resources with any questions.
If I move, what do I need to do as far as proper notification is concerned?
A:

Once you have moved, there are certain steps that must be taken to ensure that your benefit providers know how to get in contact with you.  Some departments have a "Change of Address" packet.  If not, you may obtain one from Human Resources.  Also, if you have moved and are no longer employed with the City, we'll need the corrected address for W-2's.

It is required of you as an employee to make sure that your correct contact information is given to HR.

When can I make changes to my benefits?
A:
Unless it's during an open enrollment period, you must have a qualifying event.  A qualifying event is defined as a marriage, divorce, birth, death or adoption.  Your changes must be made immediately following one of these.  If proper changes are not made within the time allowed for changes,  they can not be made until the next open enrollment period.

I received a check from the Arkansas Municipal League for my work related injury. What do I do with it?
A:
If you are off work and receive a workers compensation check from AML, it must be turned in to the FInance Department at City Hall.  The City compensates you 100% of your pay while you are out with your work related injury.  That check from AML reimburses the City.
If I get hurt at work and choose not to seek medical attention then, may I go at another time?
A:
Yes.  First ensure that your supervisor is aware of the injury/incident so that he/she can complete the proper documents.  Once any medical attention has been sought, it is your responsibility to go to Human Resources to complete and sign your workers compensation paperwork.
