Medical and sick leave

Sick leave

All Administrative, Service and Support regular employees are eligible to receive paid sick leave. Employees with primary titles that are Administrative, Service & Support who are exempt from classification because their positions are primarily directing instructional or research activities are not subject to this policy. 

Family and medical leave

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal law that provides employees the right to take a leave of absence for family, medical reasons and leave for military families while maintaining job protection. 

Maternal and paternal leave

Individual circumstances will influence the coordination between federal policy and university paid time off policy. Employees are encouraged to consult with their HR professional.

The first six weeks of maternity leave for the mother may be charged to sick leave if accruals are available. Any time after that period will require a physician's excuse.
