Family and Medical Leave Policies (FMLA)

In addition to or in conjunction with other leave policies, leave of up to twelve weeks per year may be available to a faculty member for illness or care of a family member (spouse, parent, or child), birth of a child, or placement of a child with the family for adoption or foster care.

In general, such leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act is without pay, but under some circumstances other University policies or benefits may permit continuation of pay for some or all of the period of such leave. Specific information about Family and Medical Leave Act policies and entitlements may be obtained from the Employee Relations area of the Office of Human Resources.
