Medical Leave Request Form - PDF: as a first step in the leave request process, please fill out a request form and submit it to totalrewards@wichita.edu. A member of the Total Rewards team will then contact you with next steps in the process, including providing you with a certification of health care provider form to take to the doctor as appropriate. Under FMLA, employees must provide 30 days advance notice of the need to take leave when the leave is foreseeable. When it is not possible to give 30 days' notice, the employee must provide notice to both their manager and HR as soon as practicable.
