Medical Leave

Injury, illness, or pregnancy can leave you unable to work. The University provides a variety of programs that may allow you to continue your benefit coverage, and all or part of your salary, while you are unable to work. Some of these programs offer salary replacement.

Below is a list of the programs available at the University.

  • Sick time
  • Accrued vacation
  • Vacation donated through the Vacation Donation Program
  • Academic disability program
  • Short-term disability insurance
  • Long-term disability insurance
  • Workers compensation
  • Approved unpaid time off
  • Family and Medical Leave Act

Because every person's medical leave is different, call the Employee Benefits Service Center as soon as you know you will be on leave.
