                  for Personnel or Employee Manual or Handbook

Company will grant a leave of absence to regular full-time and regular part-time
employees (who meet the requirements described below) for the care of a child after
birth or adoption or placement with the employee for foster care, the care of a family
member (spouse, child, or parent) with a serious health condition, or in the event of an
employee's own serious health condition. Leaves will be granted for a period of up to
twelve weeks in any twelve-month period.

An employee must have completed at least one full year of service with the Company
and have worked a minimum of 1,250 hours in the twelve-month period preceding the
leave to be eligible for such leave. In addition, to be eligible for leave, an employee
must work at a Company facility that employs at least fifty employees at that facility or
within seventy-five miles of that facility.

Child/Family Care Leave
If you request a leave of absence to care for a child after birth, adoption, or placement in
your home for foster care or to care for a covered family member with a serious health
condition, you will be granted unpaid leave under the following conditions:

   If the leave is planned in advance, you must provide us with at least thirty days'
    notice prior to the anticipated leave date, using the Company’s official Leave-of-
    Absence Request Form.
   If the leave is unexpected, you should notify your supervisor and the human
    resources department by filing the Leave-of-Absence Request Form as far in
    advance of the anticipated leave date as is practicable. (Normally, this should be
    within two business days of when you become aware of your need for the leave.)

All Company benefits that operate on an accrual basis (e.g., vacation, sick, and
personal days) will cease to accrue during the leave period. You will be required to use
all accrued, unused vacation and personal days during the leave period. Once such
benefits are exhausted, the balance of the leave will be without pay.

All group health benefits (e.g., major medical, hospitalization, and dental insurance) will
continue during the leave provided you continue regular employee contributions to
these plans. (Other benefits, such as pension, 401(k), life insurance, and long-term
disability will be governed in accordance with the terms of each benefits plan.)

Employees requesting a leave to care for a covered family member with a serious
health condition may be required to provide medical certification from the family
member's physician attesting to the nature of the serious health condition, probable
length of time treatment will be required, and the reasons that the employee is required
to care for this family member. Employees may also be required to provide additional
physician's statements at Company’s request. Further, the family member may be
required to submit to medical examination by physicians designated by the Company at
its discretion and at Company’s expense.

Leave for Employee's Serious Health Condition
If you request a leave of absence for your own serious health condition, you will be
granted leave under the following conditions:
 If the leave is planned in advance, you must provide us with at least thirty days'
    notice prior to the anticipated leave date, using Company’s official Leave-of-Absence
    Form.
 If the leave is unexpected, you should notify your supervisor and the human
