Family Medical Leave for Faculty and Staff

The University recognizes the importance of achieving a healthy balance between work and family obligations and is committed to supporting our employees through certain measures to promote a “family-friendly” environment. The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal law designed to help employees balance the demands of the workplace and the needs of their families by allowing for unpaid job and benefits protected leave for certain family and medical reasons.

Family Medical Leave Workshops

Family Medical Leave workshops are now being offered on a monthly basis.


Family Medical Leave Workshop for Faculty & Staff

The Family Medical Leave (FML) workshop will provide faculty and staff members who are planning to take FML leave an overview of the University’s Family Medical Leave policy.  During the workshop we will cover topics such as when and how to request FML, eligibility requirements, and responsibilities of the employee and their manager prior to, during, and after the leave period.
