Sometimes you need time away from work to care for yourself or a family member. Albertsons gives eligible associates the time needed to accommodate planned or unplanned situations.  Review the information on this page to understand the types of leave available.

If you have a work-related injury, inform your supervisor or Human Resources as soon as possible.

The leaves of absence described below are non-work-related leaves. During your leave, you may be eligible for job protection and for income replacement through short- or long-term disability insurance and/or paid disability or family/medical leave programs in certain states.

If you need to take time off from work due to your own non-work-related illness, medical condition or procedure, you may be eligible to take a Medical Leave of Absence (LOA). A Medical LOA can provide a respite from work obligations so you focus on your health and recovery. If you leave is related to pregnancy and childbirth, review the Pregnancy and Childbirth Leave of Absence below.

When you’re unable to work due to your own illness or injury, you may be eligible for job protection under the Family  Medical Leave Act (FMLA) for up to 12 weeks if you have worked for Albertsons Companies for at least 12 months and for at least 1,250 hours in the 12 months before your leave begins.

Your income may be replaced by short-term disability insurance and other programs available to you depending on the state in which you live or work. You can also use available sick pay, vacation, paid time off (PTO) or flexible time off (FTO) to top off your weekly pay to no more than 100% of your full wages (when combined with other available income sources).
