Time Away From Work

The University offers resources for faculty and staff who may need time away from work due to a qualifying event. Members of our faculty and staff employed under a collective bargaining agreement should refer to their respective agreement for details about bargained leave options. Plans for paid time off are offered solely at the discretion of the University to benefits-eligible faculty and staff. Other leaves of absence (e.g., military leaves, jury duty and family and medical leave) are subject to federal and state law.

Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

FMLA helps employees balance the demands of work with the needs of their families. The University provides reasonable unpaid job-protected leave for certain family and medical reasons such as, but not limited to, an employee's serious health condition.
