Sick Leave Benefits and the Family Medical Leave Act
Sick leave is provided for periods of temporary absence due to illness or injury of the employee or an immediate family member. The University complies with the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993. Contact Human Resources with questions.
A copy of the Medical and Family Leave guidelines for staff, as approved by the Board of Governors on October 21, 2016, is available on-line. This is the University’s policy which is considered independently from the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) which is federal law. The two policies may be enacted concurrently or independently, depending on the circumstances. It is important that all absences of more than three days for medical or family reasons be reported to Human Resources so a determination of applicability can be made.
