Time Away From Work

This page provides the University’s holiday schedule and a brief description of some of our leave programs. Members of our faculty and staff employed under a collective bargaining agreement, should also refer to their respective agreement for details about specific bargained leave options. Some of the time off plans described here (e.g., vacation, holiday, personal and medical) are offered solely at the discretion of the University. Other leaves (e.g., military leaves, jury duty and Family and Medical Leave) are subject to federal and state law. Address specific questions about leaves to your Human Resource Manager or email employee-relations@udel.edu.

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal law requiring larger employers to provide employees job-protected unpaid leave due to a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform his or her job, care for a sick family member or for a new child (including by birth, adoption or foster care).
