Family Medical Leave

Family and Medical Leave Act (Short Term Leave Without Pay)

A regular faculty member with at least two years of service may apply for up to a semester of family care leave, to care for a dependent child under the age of 12 months, or to care for a member of his/her immediate family who suffers from a serious medical or psychological condition, as documented by an appropriate physician.

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) enacted by Congress in 1993 provides eligible employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave per year for family and medical reasons. Please contact the Director of Human Resources for further information.
