Paternity Leave


An employee who is the birth father of a newborn child may use up to ten (10) days of sick leave, within the 12 month period following the birth of the child.  This time is meant for bonding and initial care of the infant, and assistance to the birth mother.  These ten 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.
