Family and Medical Leave

< Back to Leave of Absence

Under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FML), eligible UC employees may be able to take up to twelve (12) weeks of unpaid leave for:

  • Incapacity due to:
    • Pregnancy, prenatal medical care, or childbirth
    • A serious health condition
    • The serious health condition of a son or daughter, spouse, domestic partner (same-sex or opposite-sex), or parent
  • Bonding with a newborn, adopted or foster-care child in accordance with state and federal law in effect at the time of the leave

FMLA also provides Military Family Leave to eligible employees with a spouse, son or daughter, or parent on active duty or called to active duty.

To find out whether you're eligible for FML or what leave options may be available to you, please contact your Leave of Absence Coordinator for consultation and guidance.
