8.7.4 Family and Medical Leave

Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and California Family Rights Act (CFRA) Revised June 2007

The University complies with the provisions of applicable federal and state laws. A faculty member may be entitled to:

  1. Family care leave in connection with the birth or adoption of a child, or placement of a child for foster care.
  2. Family care leave when the serious illness of a child, parent, spouse or domestic partner requires the faculty member's care.
  3. Medical leave for the faculty member's own serious medical condition which prevents the faculty member from performing the functions of the job.

During the period of approved leave under FMLA/CFRA, the University continues all health benefit plans under the same conditions as for active faculty, including University payment for its customary share of the premiums. Due to the complexities of federal and state law and possible interrelationships with other leaves described herein, requests for Family Care Leave should be discussed with the DHR.
