Appendix G
FACULTY FAMILY AND MEDICAL LEAVE POLICY
1.
Conditions for Family or Medical Leave
In a 12-month period, full-time faculty members employed by the College for at least one year
are permitted leave of up to 13 weeks (paid and/or unpaid) (a full term). The 12-month period is
defined as a rolling 12-month period measured backward from the date the faculty member uses
any Family Medical Leave. (Using this method, each time a faculty member takes Family
Medical Leave, the remaining entitlement would be any balance of the 13 weeks which has not
been used during the immediately preceding 12 months.)
(
a)
To care for a child within twelve months of birth, adoption, or placement of a
child with the faculty member for care; or
(
b)
To care for a child, parent, or spouse who has a serious health condition; or
(
c)
For a serious health condition that causes the faculty member to be unable to
perform the essential elements of his or her job.
(
d)
Because of any qualifying exigency arising out of the fact that your spouse, child,
or parent is on active duty (or has been notified of an impending call or order to
active duty) in the Armed Forces in support of the contingency operation.
If both spouses are employed by the College, they are limited to a combined total of 13 weeks of
family leave for the birth or placement of a child or to care for a sick parent. If the leave is
requested for the care of a sick child or of the other spouse, each spouse is entitled to 13 weeks
leave of absence.
2.
Unpaid Family or Medical Leave
Family and medical leave is unpaid except as provided for in Section 3, Paid
Family and Medical Leave. For unpaid leave, a faculty member's salary will be
reduced
pro rata
based on each week of leave or on each course reduction during
the contract period.
3.
Paid Family or Medical Leave
The College will continue a faculty member's salary for as long as medically necessary for a
maximum of 13 weeks in a 12-month period to care for a child, parent, or spouse who has a
serious health condition; or due to the faculty member’s own serious illness.
(
a)
Paid leave will not apply to periods when you would not otherwise be
working – for example, in the case of a nine month academic position
