I am currently on FMLA for the birth of twins last year. This is my second time taking FMLA, due to a calendar year leave policy. Our employee handbooks details the maternity leave policy and states that an employee is eligible for 8 paid weeks for the birth of a child and a maximum of 12 total weeks (if using FMLA, vacation, sick, etc.). There is no indication that it must be taken following birth, nor any indication that it can not be taken more than once in the case of multiple births. It does not address these issues. When I requested leave for the second time I was approved for FMLA for the birth of a child, but was denied "maternity". They clarified that the leave could not exceed 12 weeks after birth & could only be taken once, although the handbook does not say this. Any recourse?
