12. a. All of the disability benefits paid to a covered individual during a period of family temporary disability leave with respect to any one birth or adoption shall be for a single continuous period of time, except that the employer of the covered individual may permit the covered individual to receive the disability benefits during non-consecutive weeks in a manner mutually agreed to by the employer and the covered individual and disclosed to the division by the employer.
