Maternity Leave


There shall be no stipulated medical maternity leave requirement regarding duration, either before or after childbirth.  Leave requirements will vary depending on each employee’s individual circumstances, and the advice of an attending physician.  More or less leave time may be taken based upon individual health circumstances.


An employee who is the birth mother of a newborn child may exhaust all sick days as paid leave time, during the period of physical incapacity prior to and following the birth of a child, 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).


This policy applies to all the employees of the University.
