34:11B-5. Reduced leave schedule
An employee shall be entitled, at the option of the employee, to take this leave on a reduced leave schedule, except that:



a. The employee shall not be entitled to a reduced leave schedule for a period exceeding 24 consecutive weeks; and



b. The employee shall not be entitled to take the leave on a reduced leave schedule without an agreement between the employer and employee, if the leave is taken upon the birth or adoption of a healthy child.

The employee shall make a reasonable effort to schedule reduced leave so as not to disrupt unduly the operations of the employer and the employee shall provide the employer with prior notice of the care, medical treatment, or continuing supervision by a health care provider necessary due to a serious health condition of a family member, in a manner which is reasonable and practicable. Leave taken on a reduced leave schedule shall not result in a reduction of the total amount of leave to which an employee is entitled.
