As a full-time faculty member, you are entitled to receive ten (10) weeks of paid parental leave in connection with the birth or adoption of a child. To receive this benefit,
- You must be the primary caregiver
- In the case of adoption, you must be the designated caregiver of the child immediately following the birth or adoption
Paid parental leave will run concurrently with the leaves in connection with the birth or adoption of a child (PFL, FMLA, CFRA, and PDL). Furthermore, any eligible leave for which the faculty member qualifies will supplement the benefits that the individual is entitled to receive.
All paid parental leaves must be concluded within one year of the birth or adoption of the child.
For more information on the coordination of Faculty Family Leave, please view Section 9-G: Academic and Family Life Balance of the Faculty Handbook and refer to the Family Care and Medical Leave Policy.
