Adoption Leave

Policy

Adoption leave will vary depending on whether the employee is the ‘primary caregiver’ or the ‘non-primary caregiver.’  The primary caregiver is the person in the household who will have primary responsibility in terms of time and commitment for the active care, custody, and welfare of the adopted child.  The declaration of which parent is the primary caregiver is made by the adopting parents, and an affidavit must be filed with Human Resources.

 

Primary Caregiver

  •          The primary caregiver may exhaust all sick days as paid leave time for the adoption of a child and subsequent period of bonding for the 12 weeks of Family and Medical Leave (FMLA).
  •          Sick days will be exhausted before other leave types are utilized (e.g., vacation or wellness days).

 

Non-Primary Caregiver

  •          The non-primary caregiver may take up to ten (10) sick days for the adoption of a child and subsequent period of bonding.
  •          These ten sick days will be exhausted before other leave types are utilized (e.g., vacation or wellness days).

Scope

This policy applies to all the employees of the University.
